Makefile problem?


I think I have a problem nailed down and was hoping you could confirm my
results.  If I do a 'make distclean' on a module and then 'make
html-${LANG}' where $LANG is one of the $OTHERS, usually the build fails
because of a missing entity.  This happens, I believe, because the
translation runs against the totally sanitized $PRI_LANG/ version, which
does not include fully built $PRI_LANG/fdp-entities.ent and
$PRI_LANG/${DOC_ENTITIES}.ent files.  The local $LANG/*.ent files do get
built, but since the $PRI_LANG/*.xml files are parsed before translation
and the $PRI_LANG/*.ent files don't exist, there are no calls to them in
the internal subset of the translated $LANG/*.xml files.

In case I have been very confus{ing,ed} above, here's the example I ran,
using the translation-quick-start-guide module:

$ make distclean html-it    # fails to validate, no FCMINVER entity
(Hmm, check it/doc-entities.{xml,ent} and it's there, sho 'nuff...)
(Hmm, read the it/translation-quick-start-guide.xml file... Aha! Note
the end of the internal subset where you would normally see the entities
in doc-entities.ent, and the content is missing.)

So in short, any building of *anything* requires that
${PRI_LANG}/${DOC_ENTITIES}.ent be built, in addition to
${1}/${DOC_ENTITIES}.ent .  Would the best way to fix this be to change
this rule:

set-locale-${1}::  ${1}/${FDP_ENTITIES} ${PRI_LANG}/${DOC_ENTITIES}.ent

...?  Or am I barking up the wrong rule?
