Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-02-14 11:47:56 UTC
You receive this bug because this package does not respect my system's AR ( x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar - /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar ) and calls directly ar - /usr/bin/ar
The possible solutions to fix this issue are:
1)Fix the buildsystem, if you can
2)inherit toolchain-funcs and use tc-export AR
3)inherit toolchain-funcs and use emake AR="$(tc-getAR)"

patch for fetchmail-6.3.24.ebuild to call emake AR="$(tc-getAR)" in src_compile

I've updated the ebuild so that src_compile call emake with AR="$(tc-getAR)". This fixes calling ar directly for me.

Fixed in CVS.
