Bug Description

When trying to build Maya I get the following error:

-- Found Gettext: /usr/bin/msgmerge (found version "0.18.1")
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:69 (if):
  if given arguments:


  Unknown arguments specified

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Apparently there is something wrong in the CMakeLists.txt file.

Build from trunk on Gentoo Linux, with CMake and Gettext

The attached branch fixes this problem. The problem seems to be caused when the variable that gets compared is actually not a string.

Niels, this fixes the problem, but apparently not the correct operation. At least on my system it does not seem to build translations.

My translations seem to build fine. I changed one just to test and it changed in Maya. Any errors showing up?

Seems to be my CMake install that's broken. So the _FOUND variable does
not get set properly (see, seems to be similar to
my case).

But also according to the if statement
should just be written as:


and not using a string comparison.

Updated my branch to use this (correct) style. This bug can be closed then, I'll file a new one for Gentoo.

The new CMake is now in Ubuntu Raring and the same problem has hit other projects.

Do you have a link to the gentoo bug?
