I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out for details).

Check the attached build log.

The ebuild is tremendously broken, the SSL support is no longer compiled in but dlopened. The project moved to .

I'd say punt this package and just replace it with mongoose if some user requests that.

# Jeremy Olexa <> (11 Jul 2009)
# QA removal, ebuild needs work, SSL support is dlopened instead of more
# favorable ways. Project dead, now called mongoose instead. removal bug: 248484
# mongoose bug: 173888
# Removed in ~60 days by treecleaners

(extra time for mongoose investigation)

TODO: fix || deps after removal:
22:42 <darkside_> !rdep shttpd
22:42 <Willikins> Reverse RDEPEND for www-servers/shttpd: virtual/httpd-basic-0
