Hi all,
I am trying to emerge gimp-9999, I know this is a live version and it is not supported by devs, but I think that should be a problem with the ebuild so that's why I report this bug.
Emerging I get this error:

Now type 'make' to compile the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
 * Fixing OMF Makefiles ...                                                                                                                        [ ok ]

This is my "emerge --info":

Hello Yellowhat,

my version of libtool is the same.  With neither portage nor I get the error.  Would it be too much too ask to try with portage, the latest testing version?
Comment 2 Vasco Gervasi 2012-11-07 20:42:04 UTC
Downgrade portage to and remerge gimp-9999 = same error.
Comment 3 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2012-11-08 00:57:33 UTC
Alright, thanks.

My impression is that libtoolize is call twice in the process (by ./ and by gnome's call to elibtoolize) and that may be part of the problem.

Other things you could try:
- add debbugging statements to the libtool eclass (e.g. "set -x")
- replace the call to ./ by eautoreconf, something else or nothing
Comment 4 Vasco Gervasi 2012-11-09 15:18:10 UTC
So, do you have an ebuild to test?

> So, do you have an ebuild to test?

Sorry, no.  I cannot reproduce here and have no good clue of what is going on.
Comment 6 Vasco Gervasi 2012-11-09 23:27:09 UTC
Can I try to change anything?
Will be better if you tell me what lines.

I found a solution by commenting "gnome2_src_prepare".
This is the ebuild I use:

Thanks for reply

Latest reply two years old, live ebuild just updated, seems to work right now. Daring to close.
