amd64 only workaround

Description OKUMURA N. Shin-ya 2019-04-29 05:47:23 UTC
To emerge net-fs/nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.5 fails on link phase as follows;
libtool: link: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -o nfs4_getfacl -Wl,--hash-style=gnu -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed nfs4_getfacl.o  ../libnfs4acl/.libs/libnfs4acl.a /usr/lib64/libattr.so /usr/lib/libattr.so
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/7.4.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libattr.so: error adding symbols: file in wrong format

Of course, linking with both /usr/lib{,64}/libattr.so is incorrect but I have no idea where to fix it... (profile? configure?)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge =net-fs/nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.5

Actual Results:  
Shown as before.

Expected Results:  
To be linked with /usr/lib64/libattr.so only.

amd64 only workaround

This is a quick, dirty and bad example for workaround.
If /usr/lib64/libattr.la exists, then refer "/usr/lib64/libattr.la".

Those autoconf macros are just plain broken, and should be thrown away.

I had a similar issue like this but on a different library.

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/9.3.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: //usr/lib/libfreetype.so: error adding symbols: file in wrong format
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [Makefile:624: libfontconfig.la] Error 1
make[2]: *** [Makefile:545: all] Error 2
make[1]: *** [Makefile:602: all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:486: all] Error 2

I found out that there are old orphaned files that should no longer exist and were causing compilation error:

/usr/lib64/libfreetype.a 
/usr/lib64/libfreetype.la

Removing them fixed it.

This is one way to find orphaned files:

find /usr/lib64 -name '*.la' -exec qfile -o '{}' '+'
