Rar is precompiled by rarlabs aparently using gcc 2.95.x and linked verses
That causes rar and unrar installed by the ebuild unrunnable on pure gcc 3
systems. rarlabs distributes rar_static, a static linked binary which is usable
in a gcc 3 system. I would only install rar_static as rar on pure gcc3 systems
as the dynamic rar and unrar are useless.
Also rar 3.1.0 was released, only requires a rename of the ebuild and its go.
lib-compat does make this work, however for pure gcc 3 systems (like upcoming
gentoo 1.4), lib-compat should be a depend then for this package, as else this
package will not work properly (I do not think a user shoud manually install
lib-compat to make this work)
lib-compat added as a DEPEND.
added to portage.
thanks for the heads up.
No problem, glad I can help out a little.
As test unmerged rar and lib-compat. emerging masked rar 3.1.0 installs
lib-compat fine and rar seems to work fine. Marking closed.
