package/xfsprogs: fix static build
xfsprogs links to some libraries from util-linux. Those in turn may use i18n functions when locales are enabled. When doing a uClibc build, those i18n functions are provided by the libintl library from the gettext package. xfsprogs does not use pkgconfig to find the util-linux libraries, so it misses the Requires.private field from libblkid, and thus misses the Libs.private field from libuid. And so a static link fails because of undefined references to i18n symbols. Furthermore, xfsprogs does not use automake; the hand-made Makefiles do not make use of the LIBS variable set by configure. We fix that in two ways: - pass LIBS=-lintl to configure, so that the configure step has a chance to succeed (as suggested by Waldemar) - patch a Makefile to link with EXTRALIBS, and pass EXTRALIBS via XFSPROGS_MAKE_OPTS Fixes: http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/503/50314716a9f72e8bb238e52e9dc342c68f7e0b8b/ http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/253/253a024698b55dece992b2631e30edf4ff9092f7/ http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/3fe/3fe0d96cf13af12b0051a95f7865d4e38f4a78af/ http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/d48/d48e61785d25d33106b7dab1b5cb200cf27d4044/ ...
