Subject:   Installing ICU ports on freebsd 11.0
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

I installed GNUstep on Freebsd 11.0, and I seem to be having a problem with
the localization methods  for
Dates and Times in GNUstep. While everything seems to be OK when calling
these methods, the results are wrong.
As a possible cause, a problem in my ICU-installation was mentioned.
Apparently, the library  /usr/local/lib/ should be
several megabytes, while I find it is only 1.1K.

I tried to reinstall the ICU port, with the commands
    - sudo make deinstall
    - sudo make clean
    - suddo make install

Again, everything seems to be working, no errors while installing, but the
library in question remains 1.1K.

Is there anyone with experience in installing ICU on FreeBSD, that can
confirm that the size of /usr/local/lib/ on my system is
problematic, and if so, can tell me how to install a correct library?

Thanks in advance,

E. Ancaer
