Comment 9 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2018-01-30 08:16:34 UTC
Adding the following line to src_configure (plus a dependency on libunistring) makes it compile:

    use unicode && append-libs -lunistring

However, this is a workaround only for a problem in the upstream package. So this should be reported upstream.

Thanks a lot Ulrich!
