Comment 3 Alessandro Barbieri 2022-01-21 06:38:37 UTC
Local revbump as a fix for the sip bug
Comment 4 George Shapovalov 2022-01-25 11:55:30 UTC
I can confirm. It was originally failing during the build as described in bug #815421. After applying the patches mentioned there, it now proceeds to compile, but then segfaults as in this one, or sometimes hangs while compiling the same file as in this report, or throws longjump error as in bug #823005.

The upstream has a new 3.4 version out, with bunch of binaries built by other distros, seemingly for the updated sip/python. It may be easier to get the 3.4 version in than try to trace the issue with this one..

    sci-visualization/veusz: add 3.4.99, enable py3_{10,11}, pep517
    This is technically a pre-release, but it fixes the problem
    where we cannot compile with sip-6. sip-5 is no longer in the tree
    The in-tree version of veusz cannot compile when sip:5 is present
