Description N. Andrew Walsh 2018-02-19 09:36:27 UTC
compiling conky-1.10.8 against ncurses with tinfo causes failures in compilation as in this pastebin:

workaround is to adjust package.env as follows:

# echo "CXXFLAGS=\"\${CXXFLAGS} -ltinfo\"" >> /etc/portage/env/tinfo.conf 
# echo "=app-admin/conky-1.10.8 tinfo.conf" >> /etc/portage/package.env

Thanks for the report.

This is now fixed in GIT. Please wait a few hours until the changes propagate to the mirrors and try to build again.
