23.4. Compiling i18n Programs

Many applications in the FreeBSD Ports Collection have been ported with i18n support. Some of these include -i18n in the port name. These and many other programs have built in support for i18n and need no special consideration.

However, some applications such as MySQL need to have their Makefile configured with the specific charset. This is usually done in the port's Makefile or by passing a value to configure in the source.
