ebuild unpack output
First, my apology for putting this in the wrong category. There isn't a category for the transd application so this was my "best fit."
The autogen.sh file that is currently in the git sources has the following block of code at the end:
# fix weird intltool quasi-b0rkness on my box
for i in $my_dir/po/Makefile.in.in $my_dir/po/Makefile.in $my_dir/po/Makefile
[ -f $i ] && sed -i -e \
's/\$\(POFILES\) \$\(SOURCES\)/$(POFILES) $(SOURCES) $(GMOFILES)/;' $i
This block of code has two problems:
1.. The string "$(POFILES) $(SOURCES)" does not exist in any of the files listed.
2.. It makes the autogen.sh script exit with a non-zero status.
Under normal circumstances (i.e. building from the git sources manually) this is not a problem but in my case it is an issue because I use portage and the ebuild script is seeing the non-zero exit status as a failure of the autogen.sh script.
I'm attaching the output of the 'ebuild unpack' command for your review.
