Description Myk Taylor 2013-01-02 08:35:00 UTC
getopt USE=nls executes the following line in the ebuild:
  has_version sys-libs/glibc || libintl="-lintl"
Since the x86 prefix does not have glibc installed, it attempts to link the getopt binary with -lintl.  On x86, gettext does not provide, instead providing (although, it does provide libintl.dylib on ~x64-macos).  On my x86 system, the getopt binary does link successfully without -lintl since the underlying libc provides the necessary symbols, so just removing the libintl="-lintl" line gets it working for me, but that does not seem like a portable solution.  Thoughts?

Reproducible: Always

can you post a build log, it isn't yet clear to me why it fails for you (*-macos should work)

I'll see if I can get a build log off that machine.  For the record, *-macos /does/ work due to the way gettext is built on darwin.  It's only on x86 (and probably x86_64) that it fails.

Sorry, closing this bug, can't solve this.
