gconf.bbclass: don't register schemas in the install stage
Previously this was installing schemas in the sysroot, which is wrong for native packages as nothing should touch the sysroot directly, and even more wrong for non-native packages as the sysroot is irrelevant. So, export the environment variable that stops the registration happening at install time. The postinst script will handle the non-native case, and for the sysroot I've opened #2648. This isn't a massive problem as nothing to my knowledge actually installs schemas to the sysroot. [YOCTO #2245] Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <>
