Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-02 11:15:54 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because sys-apps/gawk calls ar directly.
The issue was originally discovered on s390, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

NOTE:
If you think it doesn't make sense fix these type of issues, I'd like to point out that won't be possible use a different AR implementation (like llvm-ar) by setting the AR variable. So this issue has been reproduced by setting the AR variable to s390x-ibm-linux-gnu-ar and by removing the /usr/bin/ar binary.
