Description Georgi Georgiev 2014-03-07 16:15:09 UTC
On a multilib profile with SYMLINK_LIB=no (i.e. /usr/lib contains 32-bit libraries), net-libs/rb_libtorrent-0.16.10 fails to build with:

Checking for boost libraries:
checking for boostlib >= 1.36... yes
checking whether the Boost::System library is available... yes
configure: error: Boost.System library not found. Try using --with-boost-system=lib

The fix is trivial:

What is this multilib profile with SYMLINK_LIB=no? Can I see your emerge --info?

It's a custom profile. I put more info in bug#503412#c3 but the short version is:

I inherit these two profiles:

default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd
features/multilib

And then I set SYMLINK_LIB=no inside make.defaults

And I use paludis, so "emerge --info" would be irrelevant. I can attach "cave info" if you need it.

I just don't know if SYMLINK_LIB=no is something that is generally supported in multilib. If it is not, then having fixes for it should not be encouraged.
