Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-12-17 17:53:49 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)"

Fixing this requires running eautoreconf, which makes a thousand other things fail in turn. Right now not worth the effort.
