Hello,

I am building zsh from meta-oe layer, and it has a do_install_append()
function defined like this:

do_install_append () {
rm -fr ${D}/usr/share
}

which gets rid of lots lots of useful functionality, like
context-aware autocompletion. Can a bbappend file get rid of that
function, or do I need to edit the actual recipe? I've attempted
defining an empty do_install_append() { : } but it didn't work.
it might be worth asking why zsh is doing that in the first place.
if one doesn't want all that stuff, *that* is where an append could be
used to remove it. i think zsh removing it by default is
inappropriate.
