Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-04-23 14:07:27 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because media-video/ffmpeg calls ranlib directly.
The issue was originally discovered on x86, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

This issue has been reproduced by setting the RANLIB variable and by removing the /usr/bin/ranlib binary.
