gettext: Switch to disabling nls and reducing -native build dependencies to a set of pre built m4 macros
When analysing our build performance, its apparent that binutils-cross takes an age to get built. This is due to its dependencies on flex-native and bison-native which in turn depend on gettext-native. gettext-native is problematic as it has a significant dependency chain of its own and takes an age to build. What is worse is that we never care about the native language support in -native and -cross packages since we always force the C locale. This patch therefore disables nls for all -native packages (its already disabled for -cross) and adds a new gettext-minimal-native package which contains the m4 macros to keep autoconf/automake happy. This means we gain a significant build time speedup by the removal of gettext-native from most dependency chains (only being part of gettext for the target now). For now the LICENCE field says GPLv3, the macros are actually under a FSF MIT like licence so we need to update this part of the patch in due course. Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
