From: Ross Burton <>

Previously this was installing schemas in the sysroot, which is wrong for native
packages as nothing should touch the sysroot directly, and even more wrong for
non-native packages as the sysroot is irrelevant.

So, export the environment variable that stops the registration happening at
install time. The postinst script will handle the non-native case, and for the
sysroot I've opened #2648.  This isn't a massive problem as nothing to my
knowledge actually installs schemas to the sysroot.

[YOCTO #2245]
