Bug Description

I've a global LINGUAS="en it" variable and "man/Makefile" doesn't seem to like it.

# make install
fails with:
Making install in man
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/app-backup/deja-dup-17.90/work/deja-dup-17.90/man'
make[2]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/app-backup/deja-dup-17.90/work/deja-dup-17.90/man'

# LINGUAS="" make install
works as expected

It seems to me in the first case make simply doesn't "GEN" the langs dirs

I confirm this bug with deja-dup-18.0. In my case LINGUAS is set to "es" but I had to compile deja-dup setting LINGUAS="" as stated in the previous comment.

Changed in deja-dup:
importance: Undecided → Low
milestone: none → 19.0
status: New → Fix Committed

The help subdir is also affected. I have to set:

--enable-nls -> unset LINGUAS
--disable-nls -> export LINGUAS=""

otherwise help will be build in all languages.
