CC'ing toolchain since there are different opinions on whether this is a valid bug

Referring to bug 438332. Autotools doesn't itself respect AR/RANLIB, so this is is just lost fight already. If nothing else is misrespected than AR, then there should be no bug report -- but if there is others like CC misrespected at the same time... It doesn't hurt to make it respect CHOST for AR too, but is still pointless.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2012-10-30 17:37:34 UTC
Futhermore m-i-t is deadcode and replaced by sys-apps/kmod.

If Autotools is a crap, we are not forced to follow it.

The ebuild should respect the _SYSTEM_ AR, so the bug is valid.

as said, m-i-t has been replaced by kmod and as explained in bug 438332 this is pointless
Comment 6 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2012-10-30 18:16:52 UTC
taking this back, later automake is using ARFLAGS, where as previous ones didn't...
Comment 7 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2012-10-30 18:17:19 UTC
but is WONTFIX still due to kmod
Comment 8 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-10-30 18:22:25 UTC
Guys if you re-open and close this bug again you'll be pissing me off as I get the same message copied at least three times, k?

should be all set now in the tree; thanks for the report!
