Maybe you want to install sci-electronics/geda-suite, too?
Comment 2 Francois Chenier 2019-09-06 09:34:02 UTC
Same issue here. It seems this package don't play well with dev-scheme/guile-2.2

I downgraded to guile to version 2.0.14-r3 recompiled sci-electronics/geda and all is working fine now.

I noticed the same behavior after my most recent install and realized after looking through old logs I had been using guile 2.0. Seems to be a duplicate of #643822

gEDA 1.10.0 has some official support for guile 2.2. I threw together a quick ebuild and was able to build it against guile 2.0 but the xorn component still has some issues building with 2.2.
