encodings: Add dependency to mkfontdir-native
Currently adding a font recipe to an image doesn't have enough dependencies to cause mkfontdir-native to be included in the native sysroot. This creates problems with the postinstall scripts for fonts which call mkfontdir to create font index files: font.dir. The end result is missing font.dir files in the built image and a malfunctioning font system. Dependencies for the relevant recipes currently look like this: * <font.bb> [D ] -> font-util-native [R ] -> encodings, font-util [RN] -> font-util-native * font-util [D ] -> encodings [R ] -> mkfontdir, mkfontscale, encodings [RN] -> mkfontdir-native, mkfontscale-native * encodings [D ] -> mkfontscale-native, font-util-native * mkfontdir [R ] -> mkfontscale [RN] -> mkfontscale-native * mkfontscale [D ] -> libfontenc * libfontenc [D ] -> font-util Where: * D = DEPENDS * R = RDEPENDS * RN = RDEPENDS_class-native * <font.bb> e.g. font-adobe-100dpi*.bb Some details where omitted for clarity e.g. dependencies on util-macros. I believe the intent behind the RDEPENDS_class-native chain: * <font.bb> -> font-util-native -> mkfontdir-native was to provide the necessary dependency on mkfontdir. However because the native sysroot is not built from packages this RDEPENDS_class-native chain doesn't have the desire effect (i.e. it doesn't pull in mkfontdir-native). Changing the RDEPENDS_class-native chain into a DEPENDS_class-native chain is a non-starter because of the build time dependency loop it creates: * font-util-native -> mkfontscale-native -> libfontenc-native -> font-util-native Having upstream remove the build time dependency of libfontenc on font-util is also a non-starter[1] even though it does create problems in other distributions, for example on Debian see [2], [3]. Instead add a DEPENDS on mkfontdir-native in the encodings recipe in addition to the mkfontscale-native dependency it already contains. This solves the missing mkfontdir in the native sysroot problem without introducing a build dependency loop.
