fails to start for me:

ago@amd64box ~ $ xboard 
xboard: no fonts match pattern -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Comment 2 Elijah "Armageddon" El Lazkani (amd64 AT) 2011-07-17 00:51:01 UTC

No start, same problem as Agostino.

Comment 5 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-08-16 20:02:36 UTC
Your font setups are broken.  The package is fine.

3 arch tester sayd the same error. I think there is a problem on this package.
Comment 7 blain 'Doc' Anderson 2011-09-19 00:01:54 UTC
amd64 won't start
Comment 8 Tony Vroon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-20 14:04:38 UTC
Three independent testers report breakage.
AMD64 will not stable this package. Dropping from CC.
Comment 9 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-20 14:54:37 UTC
dropped amd64 support for the package.
Comment 10 Siim Ainsaar 2011-09-20 18:09:37 UTC
Is the formerly stable games-board/xboard-4.4.4 also suddenly broken on amd64 as its support was also dropped in this bug? It works for me since last October... If it is actually broken, then where is the bug tracking the breakage? If it isn't, then it should be rekeyworded.
Comment 11 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-20 19:04:36 UTC
When arch teams refuse to stablize I always drop the keywords.  I'm not going to keep old ebuilds around.  For local use, feel free to add entries to package.keywords as described in the portage man page.

Doesn't it mean it just lacks proper deps for according font?
Comment 13 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-21 17:33:17 UTC
Citing ebuild:

> if ! use default-font ;then              
>     ewarn "Read the xboard(6) man page for specifying the font for xboard to use."
> fi

You didn't. Did you? It isn't amd64 specific.
Comment 14 Siim Ainsaar 2011-09-26 13:50:52 UTC
As stabilization bugs should be specific and minimalistic I've opened bug 384521 for the amd64 issue.
Comment 15 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-11-02 01:10:23 UTC
Long enough.
