Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-05-01 18:49:28 UTC
You receive this bug because this package does not respect my system's AR (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar) and calls directly /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)"

From the build log:

ar -urs libNUtil.a DialogF.o getfiles.o printUtils.o misc.o fileUtils.o prefFile.o fontsel.o managedList.o utils.o clearcase.o
