Hmm I will look into this.
In the meantime can you use the libextractor that comes with gentoo.
During compile, if tracker sees that libextractor is already installed
then it wont build the inlined version by default.
Seems libextractor is not entirely problem free. And when I finally got
it built I get this:
060813 3:21:32 [ERROR] Error message file
'~/tracker/build/share/tracker/english/errmsg.sys' had only 463 error
but it should contain at least 466 error messages.
Check that the above file is the right version for this program!

Don't know why it's trying to use "File name /var/lib/mysql/ibdata1",
but it is.
It should never do this.
The errmsg problem is one that will continue to haunt tracker as they
are not forward compatible with newer versions of mysql (the inlined
version of that file is for mysql 5.0.22 - you can fix by copying the
correct version to usr/share/tracker/english.)
I will be porting tracker to sqlite (which is a much better embedded db)
so we wont have this problem in the future.
Oh, and I'd include patches, but.. me and autoconf/automake have a
history of not getting along so well. So I thought I'd let you have a
stab at a cleaner solution first. The last problem with libextractor is
extremely simple, and simply renaming the function "splice" (in twice
places) solves it.
PS, my thunderbird spellcheck picked up another tiny bug, "Initialising
tracker...", it's Initializing ;)
It can be both in English (the s and z are interchangable when preceding
