Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-05-19 09:52:05 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 cru libdeps.a deps/ylib/yuri.o

patch against latest ebuild

I've created an patch for the latest ebuild. This should fix the ar issue (using AR="$(tc-getAR)")
