Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-12-11 18:03:38 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)"

different issue imho

it uses libpotrace from system but insists in building its own that will be thrown away...
Comment 2 Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2013-03-10 10:13:35 UTC
fixed in 1.2

$ cat files/dvisvgm-1.2-external_potrace.patch 
Do not build potracelib if system potrace is being used.
