Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-12-20 20:16:39 UTC
It does not look like an actual sandbox violation to me (or why would git want to access /var/log/sandbox?). The second error (the alleged sandbox violation) is what causes the build failure, since FEATURES=strict. If you do not set that (or stricter, and so on) it merrily marches on and "succeeds" the compile phase nicely.
Comment 3 Eric Westbrook 2011-12-28 17:42:19 UTC
Okay...  but git still shouldn't be failing at all, should it?  Should it even be invoked at all?
Comment 4 Eric Westbrook 2011-12-29 15:25:23 UTC
Building with FEATURES="-sandbox" also allows the build to proceed and succeed.  Harmless enough in this case, since the offending command is a simple "git status", but still very unsatisfying.

So, I'll keep standing by for response(s) about the need for this git activity in a non-git build.  Since the build succeeds without the success of that git command anyway, I have to posit that it's unnecessary and doesn't belong.  I'd be happy to make a patch to skip or remove it, if consensus agrees.
Comment 5 darkshikari 2012-02-04 20:00:18 UTC
x264 uses git to calculate the version information for x264 --version, which is necessary since x264 doesn't have official release version numbers.  x264 will build without it, but won't list the actual version number, only the API/soname version.
Comment 6 Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2015-10-12 10:11:08 UTC
seems fixed in latest snapshots
