I am cross-compiling openrc for armv7a, openrc-0.9.9* build fail because of following issue

Can you please try and 9999?
Comment 2 Christian Ruppert (idl0r) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2012-05-06 21:57:45 UTC
Also, can you attach the full build.log please?
I don't see the librc-misc.o/librc there

I am closing this due to no response from the reporter. If it is still
an issue, please feel free to reopen.

I had this problem too with version 0.11.8, compiling natively on x86. The problem is that rc links to the installed version of librc. If the installed version is old enough to lack the symbol 'rc_proc_getent' it will fail and cause this error. Perhaps it is avoided by first installing some intermediate version (since it doesn't happen everywhere apparently). I just deleted /lib/ and /usr/lib/ and it worked. Of course the right solution would be to make sure openrc links to it's own version of librc, instead of the installed one.

Please do not add arch teams; they do not fix issues like this.
