Packaging hints for binary package distributors
===============================================

Although the source of the gettext package comes as a single package,
I recommend that in distributions of binary packages the installed files
be split into two packages:

   gettext-runtime
        Contents: Runtime libraries and programs.
        Audience: Anyone who wants to run internationalized programs.

   gettext-tools
        Contents: Tools and documentation for developers and translators.
        Audience: Anyone who wants to develop or localize internationalized
                  programs, i.e. developers and translators.
        Dependencies: requires gettext-runtime.

The 'gettext-runtime' binary package is much smaller than the 'gettext-tools'
binary package (420 KB versus 5.5 MB). I recommend to include it in the default
installation list, like GNU 'coreutils'; in fact, the runtime programs are
utilities for sh programs.

The 'gettext-runtime' binary package can be installed by doing

      cd gettext-runtime
      ./configure
      make
      make install

The 'gettext-tools' binary package can be installed by doing

      cd gettext-tools
      ./configure
      make
      make install

If you want to install both at the same time, you simply do at the toplevel
directory:

      ./configure
      make
      make install

The precise split between gettext and gettext-tools is according to the
following file list.

   gettext-runtime

Java support:
-------------

If GNU gcj is available at build time, two programs will be built as native
executables:
      $prefix/lib/gettext/gnu.gettext.*
and the gettext-tools package will therefore have a runtime dependency to
libgcj.so.

If GNU gcj is not available at build time but another Java implementation is
available instead, the two programs will be compiled to Java bytecode only:
      $prefix/share/gettext/gettext.jar
and the gettext-tools package will therefore have a runtime dependency to
the Java virtual machine (Sun Java2, IBM Java2, GNU libgcj.jar, or other).


C# support:
-----------

For C# support, one of pnet or mono must be available at build time; it must
also be available at run time. If you have both available, choose the desired
one through the configure option. Note there is no interoperability currently
between pnet and mono: Programs compiled with pnet don't run with mono, and
vice versa.
