Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-258) doesn't consider path to locale and localedef
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2006 20:11:29 GMT doesn't consider path to locale and localedef

         Key: STDCXX-258
     Project: C++ Standard Library
        Type: Bug

  Components: Build  
    Reporter: Andrew Black

At this time, the script invoks the locale and localedef utilities using
the PATH environment variable to determine the location of the utilities.  This creates a
problem if the bin subdirectory of the buildspace isn't in the PATH variable (likely), or
if a system copy of locale or localedef is present in the PATH variable prior to the buildspace
bin subdirectory.

One possible solution is to alter the PATH variable when calling the script,
either manually or in the stub locale and sanity_check scripts.  The trade off of this method
is that other programs may be invoked incorrectly, if the altered PATH masks another utility
used in the script.

A second possibility is to alter the script to use relative or absolute
paths to the locale and localedef utilities.
