Ross Burton - May 17, 2013, 9:40 a.m.
We assumed that the only relevant gdk-pixbuf loaders in the native environment
were the ones in gdk-pixbuf itself, as the icon cache is only for PNG files.
However, glib-compile-resources can transform SVG files to raw image data, and
done natively this requires the SVG loader to be registered.  The current
implementation relies on this assumption by generating the cache based on the
staging directory during install, so if gdk-pixbuf-native is re-installed to the
sysroot after librsvg-native it will overwrite the loader cache.

So, remove the code in do_install that updated the cache, and rely on the new
logic in pixbufcache.bbclass that updates the cache when it's installed into the
sysroot itself.
