Hi,

(CCing guix-devel because I'm confused about this and more eyes can't
hurt)

On Sat, May 18, 2019 at 05:50:13AM +0200, Ricardo Wurmus wrote:

Should this be a patch to the build-system?  Although maybe it's not
that simple: https://ctan.org/texarchive/macros/xetex/latex/polyglossia
lists four files, incuding an "ins" file.

I tried patching the README path as Ricardo suggested.  This got
somewhere, complaining of missing fonts, so I added texlive-fonts-cm
to native-inputs.  With both these changes, the build now fails while
trying to build example-thai.tex, and the errors appear to indicate
trying to build a LaTeX file with plain TeX:

Processing file polyglossia.dtx (example-thai.tex) -> example-thai.tex
File polyglossia.dtx ended by \endinput.

(and more...)

I'm not that familiar with the intricacies of properly building TeXLive
from source, but the difference between the file list on CTAN and what
comes from the Subversion repo via texlive-ref smells fishy to me.  If I
manually run any permutation of  `{xe,lua}tex polyglossia.{ins,dtx}`
it mostly seems to build OK, but to my surprise no polyglossia.sty
is produced!  There's no actual build instructions in the README or the
polyglossia.pdf, so I'm rather lost here.

Thanks,

Thanks for giving it a try.  The build system works on =E2=80=9Cins=E2=80=
=9D files by
default.  I guess it should try =E2=80=9Cdtx=E2=80=9D files as well.

We can patch the dtx file in a build phase and replace =E2=80=9C../README=
=E2=80=9D with
just =E2=80=9CREADME=E2=80=9D.  We can=E2=80=99t write to the parent of the=
 build directory, and
extracting everything a level deeper seems wrong.

What do you think?

of progress.  Not being that familiar with how things work yet,
I'm going on what I can guess by looking at gnu/packages/tex.scm,
guix/build-system/texlive.scm and guix/build/texlive-build-system.scm
so I may well be misinterpreting some things.

The source for polyglossia comes in a single file, polyglossia.dtx.
The README embedded within it says to extract the files by running
xetex or luatex on it.  I tried to convince the build system to do
this by this patch, which may or may not have been the right approach.
It does at least get a new error:

Generating file(s) ../README 
! I can't write on file `../README.tex'.

It appears to be trying to write its README file to the directory above
the build directory, which is failing. Is there a way to make this
directory writeable, or to stop the build system from trying to generate
the README there?
