Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-09-05 13:53:46 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 rv autofs.a cache.o mount_clnt.o mount_xdr.o cat_path.o rpc_subs.o mounts.o log.o nsswitch.o master_tok.o nss_tok.o args.o alarm.o 
macros.o master.o defaults.o parse_subs.o dev-ioctl-lib.o

respect ar, ranlib, pass those variables during compile phase.
I don't think we need a revision bump here, let me know if I'm wrong..

You are right, this is build-time issue(package just does not build in some cases).
