            Bug ID: 12991
           Summary: PER_PACKAGE_DIRECTORIES problem with
           Product: buildroot
           Version: 2020.05
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at buildroot.uclibc.org
          Reporter: info at hifiberry.com
                CC: buildroot at uclibc.org
  Target Milestone: ---

Some packages create a symlink for gettext-tiny in


lrwxrwxrwx 72 matuschd matuschd   84 Jun  9 11:49
/home/matuschd/buildroot-4/per-package/xkeyboard-config/host/share/gettext ->

However, cairo and fontconfig, create a directory with a subdirectory "its":

ls -l /home/matuschd/buildroot-4/per-package/python-pycairo/host/share/gettext
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 matuschd matuschd 4096 Jun  9 11:54 its

As the result, the final rsync fails as the directory is non-empty:

rsync -a --link-dest=/home/matuschd/buildroot-4/per-package/alsa-utils/host/
cannot delete non-empty directory: share/gettext
could not make way for new symlink: share/gettext
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code
23) at main.c(1196) [sender=3.1.2]
Makefile:737: recipe for target 'host-finalize' failed
make[1]: *** [host-finalize] Error 23
Makefile:84: recipe for target '_all' failed
make: *** [_all] Error 2

This way, the PER_PACKAGE_DIRECTORY setting can't be used 

I'm not sure at what point this should be fixed
