MythTV ebuild should have dependency on sys-devel/gdb

Reported by: tilo@… Owned by: Raymond Wagner

The MythTV build makes use of gdb. Since gdb does not have to be installed the MythTV ebuild should have a dependency on it.

GDB is a debugger, for use debugging. If a user wants to help debug MythTV, they can install this on their own. MythTV does not use it directly, so there is no reason for us to pull it in.

Then the build process should be designed better. I am currently trying to emerge MythTV and get plenty errors due to missing gdb. Maybe these errors are not the reason why the build eventually fails but how should I know?

See (it's partly german so look for “gdb: Kommando nicht gefunden”).

Oh, this pastebin is just the start of the build. I believe there are more such errors later on (build is running right now) but I am not sure about this.

Sorry for the nuisance but I missed the “
true” at the end of all these commands. So the missing gdb seems not to be responsible for my build problems :(.

Of course this ticket can be closed again.
