So, you can’t install gettext?
Here’s a hack to get you past it.
$ emerge –oneshot gettext
When it’s all unpacked, Ctrl+z (this will pause the job), go to the work directory, something like this:
From there, go in here:
and in here..
edit “stpncpy.c” with your favorite text editor, find
“# define __stpncpy stpncpy”
And add // at the beginning of the line, like so:
“//# define __stpncpy stpncpy”
Save and quit, then type “fg 1″ and return, this will resume the job.
This hack bypasses the stpncpy problem. Someone more serious than me needs to create a new ebuild for this though…
