Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2016-05-27 13:32:26 UTC
Created attachment 435552 [details, diff]

Nonexistence of ctypes module is tolerated by pym/portage/util/ and pym/portage/util/
portage.util.locale.check_locale() function has this documentation:
        Check whether the locale is sane. Returns True if it is, prints
        warning and returns False if it is not. Returns None if the check
        can not be executed due to platform limitations.

However portage.package.ebuild.config.config.environ() function treats None returned by portage.util.locale.check_locale() in the same way as False.
In situation when e.g. ctypes module is unavailable, it results in the following traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
