I try to use gettext snapshot (the one available from mingw download
page) to i18n, but with little luck. After installing it together with
libiconv to my mingw directory, I can't get any program to display any
other language than English. Of course, the message catalogs I'm trying
to use are present.
One thing I've noticed is that
$ gettext --help
Standard search directory: c:/mingw/share/locale
Which is wrong, my mingw installation is at c:/devel/msys/mingw. I've
tried setting TEXTDOMAINDIR to /usr/share/locale, still to no avail.
I did RTFM and searched list archives, with little luck. Does anybody
have any idea? Would I have better luck by trying to build recent
gettext + libiconv FSF versions from sources?
My setup is
MinGW-3.1.0-1 installed at c:/devel/msys/mingw
MSYS-1.0.9 installed at c:/devel/msys
