Default packages in core that don't build from PKGBUILD

Hi ML,
I'm trying to rebuild core repo with pacbuilder and I watched some
packages doesn't rebuild from PKGBUILD

packages list:

cpio: make fail
device-mapper: source tarball not found
gcc: make fail
gcc-libs: make fail
iptables: make fail
libldap: make fail
libpcap: source tarball not found
lvm2: source tarball not found
ntfs-3g: source tarball not found
popt: connection refused
wpa_supplicant: require kernel<2.6.26 !!!


for some of these the problem is easy to solve, the others I think
need patch for gcc4.3



Yeah, we have a lot of "source not found" issues in extra too. I was
working on the source tarball generation script a little today, and am
going to configure it to dump to the ML when source is not found.

Just a quick question for ya though - what is pacbuilder? Is it an
automated build tool? If so, I think gcc and gcc-libs have odd
bootstrapping requirements when building. Perhaps Jan or Andy can
enlighten us a little?




gcc-libs and gcc failures will probably be due to needing a de_DE
locale. From their PKGBUILDS:


if ! locale -a | grep ^de_DE; then
echo "You need the de_DE locale to build gcc."
return 1
fi

German conspiracy...
gcc checks for a bug in the de_DE locale to see if it can enable
--clocale=gnu. Older versions of glibc have this bug. If de_DE is not
enabled, this check triggers the wrong result and --clocale=gnu is not
set.
