Unfortunately in newt-0.52.15 the author starts passing `--version-script` option to ld, which is not supported by the toolchain (gcc-apple 4.2.1_p5666-r1)
I really hope this ebuild is officially supported in prefix. Since app-misc/byobu depends on this package.
I don't see anyone actively working on this and since I don't use byobu anymore I don't have interest in following this bug.
