Well ideally I'd like to have a complete system with the bare minimum
number of patches required to make packages build & work on uclibc.
Removing Java was an idea for a short-cut to get to that stage.
What does Java have to do with compiling packages?
gcc-3.3 depends on gettext which depends on fastjar which is built by
If one cuts out Java, gettext is that much smaller and easier to
build, and so is gcc. Simple really.
Once again this is just a shortcut to get build-dependencies out of
the way first. Once most of the packages are present this would be
rebuilt to be the full package.
Once you want the build-dependencies back, I tell you, it will be a
pain you-know-where to put them in correct shape. And this is going to
happen once you get to the point of compinig X11 stuff and glib/gtk.
Just make a list of everything you have installed and rebuild each
package one-by-one until you've covered everything. I can't see where
the problem is.
