Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-04 12:03:35 UTC
There are a few changes in glibc-2.10 that might make your software fail to build with it, please refer to my blog post [1] if you're not sure what the problem is.

And no I don't usually provide emerge --info with these bugs because they are caused by glibc-2.10!

Thanks, Diego

 We will take it.

We had a deeper look and decided that this package is not worth any further effort.  There is a experimental fork which can enter Gentoo once there is a need for it. 

Treecleaner, maybe mask it for 60 days, if any complaints arise, Emacs team will put a live ebuild for the experimental fork into our overlay and eventually provide a normal ebuild upon release.

# Ulrich Mueller <> (09 Jun 2009)
# Masked for removal in 60 days. Doesn't build with glibc-2.10. Incompatible
# with current Emacs versions. No upstream release since more than five years.
# If you want us to keep this package, please contact <>, or
# leave a comment at bug 272593.
