Description Red 2020-02-05 03:13:43 UTC
net-dns/dnstop does not compile with errors such as:

dnstop.o:dnstop.c:function report: error: undefined reference to 'stdscr'

This is similar to bug 601902 regarding media-libs/libcaca and the workaround mentioned in Comment #8 also works for net-dns/dnstop:

I created the file /etc/portage/env/libcaca-fix.conf containing this line:

LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -ltinfow"

Then I added this to my /etc/portage/package.env:

media-libs/libcaca libcaca-fix.conf

Now media-libs/libcaca compiles properly.

    net-dns/dnstop: fix net-libs/libpcap[ipv6] situation, drop USE=ipv6, use pkg-config for ncurses[tinfo] (thanks lorem_ipsum and, bug 595184).
