Description Rafał Mużyło 2009-05-02 03:40:08 UTC
(I think glade 3.6.3 is still in gnone overlay only,
but this is a more general note, possibly an unforeseen upstream bug)

I've emerged glade 3.6.3, upgrading from glade 3.4.5 and got a strange
result - revdep-rebuild claimed that it immediately needed to rebuild it.
*   broken /usr/lib/glade3/modules/ (requires
However, belongs to glade.
But it's for 3.6.3.
I think that the problem comes from m4/python.m4 macro.
The important part is:
py_exec_prefix=`$PYTHON -c "import sys; print sys.exec_prefix"`
if test "x$PYTHON_LIBS" == x; then
  PYTHON_LIBS="-L${py_prefix}/lib -lpython${PYTHON_VERSION}"
(for me, on x86, that means -L/usr/lib)
That is a bit incompatible with portage,
as it makes it link with the libs in /usr/lib during src_install().

Of course, if I'd rebuild it now, it will be fixed,
but some people may get surprised by this during upgrade.
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-05-16 12:46:51 UTC
could you report this problem upstream ? Thanks.
Comment 3 Arun Raghavan (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-07 19:27:26 UTC
Added a fix for this with the 3.6.4 bump. Thanks for the help, Rafał.
