Platform is SUSE Enterprise 11 SP0. Bootstrapping fails at the `./ $EPREFIX/tmp tar' step. Console output is:

As a workaround, you can try to add -Wl,-z,muldefs to LDFLAGS
Comment 2 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-06-15 12:49:02 UTC
Or bootstrap "tar22"
Comment 3 Rabbe Fogelholm 2011-06-15 14:17:54 UTC
I tried "tar22", seems to work fine.
Comment 4 Michael Haubenwallner gentoo-dev 2017-07-18 09:09:56 UTC
Still a problem with tar-1.26?
Comment 5 Rabbe Fogelholm 2017-07-18 12:44:12 UTC
Sorry, I don't have access to the SUSE Enterprise 11 SP0 host anymore.
