Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-12-01 21:02:34 UTC
You receive this bug because this package does not respect my system's AR/RANLIB ( x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar - /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar | x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ranlib - /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ranlib ) and calls directly ar - /usr/bin/ar | ranlib - /usr/bin/ranlib
The possible solutions to fix this issue are:
1)Fix the buildsystem, if you can
2)inherit toolchain-funcs and use tc-export AR RANLIB
3)inherit toolchain-funcs and use emake AR="$(tc-getAR)" RANLIB="$(tc-getRANLIB)"
