I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2008/11/14/problems-and-mitigation-strategies-for-as-needed for details).
Check the attached build log.
No log attached.
I personally got an error during compilation, so no -as-needed I guess
A fix for this is in portage. Thanks for report
