Hi Moritz,

Thanks for sharing your work. I committed your contributions "as-is" since I didn't spot any problems:


Could I ask a favor? Could you send a patch for doc/index.html that modifes the "Requirements" appropriately? You mentioned that gettext is needed because of msgfmt. Gettext is already mentioned, but maybe not adequately. On opensuse this is provided by gettext-runtime. This is required by gettext-tools which is already listed there for opensuse. Any other distro-specific info you have would be appreciated.

I had a moment of doubt about the name "libgnurx". The normal rule is that we use the name of the project. For this case, it's not clear that the package has a project with name, and there seems to be a precedent for referring to it as "libgnurx".

Also wondering about the line in wxwidgets.mk:

   -$(MAKE) -C '$(1)/locale'

Does the - prefix mean that the step might fail and this would be okay?

2. file/magic:


Second, configure seems not to think that it's being cross-compiled for some reason. Therefore I had to hardcode this in magic/Makefile.am as well.

I think Volker and Tony have dealt with this kind of thing in other packages. I wonder if it's interference from Wine.


I've seen this because of Wine in other packages - however, Wine was good enough that it could run the generation tools that would have otherwise been built for the build arch.
