Comment 1 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-06-05 06:54:32 UTC
Is it possible to use system sed instead?

Patch for kbuild building with gcc 4.7

This patch removes an improper attribute given to one of the functions in kbuild's internal copy of sed. The same issue occured with libc and was fixed already, as shown in this url where I found the solution:

With this patch I can successfully build virtualbox using kbuild.

Patch for ebuild to include previous patch

Here's a patch for the ebuild for convenience.
Comment 5 Harm Geerts 2012-06-18 01:39:57 UTC
attached patch solved this issue for me.
I believe bug 390247 should be added as a blocker for clarity.
