libxslt: Avoid regenerating manpage during "make install"
The timestamps in libxslt-1.1.28.tar.gz (specifically) are rather hokey, making the source files for the documentation appear newer than the generated output: -rw-rw-r-- 500/500 16307 2012-11-21 07:22 libxslt-1.1.28/doc/xsltproc.xml -rw-rw-r-- 500/500 7082 2012-09-12 07:24 libxslt-1.1.28/doc/xsltproc2.html -rw-rw-r-- 500/500 9475 2012-09-04 15:26 libxslt-1.1.28/doc/xsltproc.html -rw-rw-r-- 500/500 8256 2012-11-21 06:03 libxslt-1.1.28/doc/xsltproc.1 This causes make to decide that xsltproc.1 needs to be regenerated during the installation process. However, this requires a native xsltproc binary which may not be available, leading to errors like: | make[2]: /usr/bin/xsltproc: Command not found | make[2]: [xsltproc.1] Error 127 (ignored) Adding DEPENDS_class-target = "libxslt-native", or installing xsltproc in the host environment, fixes the above but the documentation still doesn't build: | I/O error : Attempt to load network entity | warning: failed to load external entity "" | error | xsltParseStylesheetFile : cannot parse | compilation error: file ./xsltproc.xml line 10 element refentry | xsltParseStylesheetProcess : document is not a stylesheet And in any case, requiring libxslt-native would increase build time for no real benefit. So, let's just adjust the timestamp on the shipped copy of xsltproc.1 to make it appear newer than the source files. Signed-off-by: Phil Blundell <> Signed-off-by: Saul Wold <>
