Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-11-24 21:30:42 UTC
You receive this bug because this package does not respect my system's AR ( x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar - /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar ) and calls directly ar - /usr/bin/ar
The possible solutions to fix this issue are:
1)Fix the buildsystem, if you can
2)inherit toolchain-funcs and use tc-export AR
3)inherit toolchain-funcs and use emake AR="$(tc-getAR)"

/usr/bin/ar cru libopenbsd-compat.a bsd-asprintf.o bsd-snprintf.o strlcat.o strlcpy.o strsep.o strtoll.o strtonum.o strtoul.o

This issue doesn't happen anymore with sed-4.2.2 (sed-4.2.1 is still affected) . It seems to be fixed upstream. I guess we can close this bug.

Wrong bug, sorry for the noise :(

ok, the simple solution is that we should invoke emake AR="$(tc-getAR)" during src_compile(), this is not enough to pass it only into src_configure().
