Description Xavier Miller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-06-11 17:48:22 UTC
Ebuilds using imake don't work anymore with ABI=x32:

Imakefile.c:34:0: fatal error: Imake.tmpl: No such file or directory

But file is present:
# find / -type f -name Imake.tmpl

Reproducible: Always

it isn't just ABI=x32.  imake stuff appears to have /usr/lib/ hardcoded, so if you build on any system where /usr/lib doesn't point to your native ABI, it'll fail.  i hit this while building tightvnc.

symlinking /usr/lib*/X11 /usr/lib/ worked around the issue.

media-libs/nas is the only package in tree that I see that is actually multilib (many packages inherit multilib for get_libdir()) that depends on imake, and it seems to deal with imake's deficiency sufficiently.

imake is basically unmaintained, and the /usr/lib*/X11 lib paths don't exist anymore. Let's WONTFIX since I expect fewer and fewer projects to use imake over time.
