So I'm basically playing around with a chroot using uClibc, and I managed to get a working stage3 installation.

When trying to get Xorg up and running I get stuck at xkeyboard-config which requires gettext (configure: error: GNU gettext tools not found; required for intltool) which uClibc doesn't support.
Previously xkeyboard-config could be configured with --with-included-gettext, but the option is not in the actual configure-script (it's only mentioned in the docs).

So what are my possibilities? Removing all references to gettext?
Any advice would be most welcome.

Since that package doesn't install any binaries, I would suggest making a quickpkg of it on another installation where it does build, and then using emerge -K to install it.

It's a bit of a dirty hack but the installed files should be identical I believe.

What I did was use the Crossdev and the Gentoo Embedded overlay for my specific toolchain to compile and make a xkeyboard-config quickpackage that gets pulled in by portage inside of the chroot environment.
