Description Bertrand Jacquin 2012-05-22 18:05:26 UTC
When building bind-tools 9.8.1 (current stable) with idn USE flags, it does :

# ROOT=/data/tmp USE=idn emerge -vat =bind-tools 9.8.1
        [  --with-idn[=MPREFIX]      enable IDN support using idnkit [default PREFIX]],

As configure is called like this :

./configure --prefix=/usr ... --with-idn ...

so idn is check in /usr which is wrong when ROOT is not /

This make cross compile fail as LDFLAGS contains -L/usr/lib -lidnkit :
