gettext incompatible with automake's distcheck target?
I tried to use in an automake based project gettext but I always get
errors starting "make distcheck". The problem seems to be that a readonly
source directory is used during this step and make update-po is started in
po/ which tries to update the POT file in the source directory. This fails:
make: Entering directory `/home/jens/.../myProject/_build/po'
/usr/bin/xgettext --default-domain=myProject --directory=../.. \
--add-comments=TRANSLATORS: --keyword=_ --keyword=N_ \
&& test ! -f myProject.po \
|| ( rm -f ../../po/myProject.pot \
&& mv myProject.po ../../po/myProject.pot )
rm: cannot remove `../../po/myProject.pot': Permission denied
make: *** [rhost.pot-update] Error 1
I really cannot believe that I'm the first user of automake/gettext who
noticed this. How to solve it?
