Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-12-27 18:40:56 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)"

Note, this package does not recpect AR in the configure phase,, infact we have:

checking for ar... /usr/bin/ar
Comment 1 Chema Alonso Josa (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-12-27 21:21:34 UTC
The AR variable is actually exported in pkg_setup() but the configure script does not get it because it is not a full path.

I found a fix by sedding the configure script:

sed -i 's/set dummy ar/set dummy $AR/' configure || die

as the first line of src_prepare()

The keynote-2.3-qa.patch file can be modified to not remove AR = @AR@ in the Makefile.
Comment 2 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2012-12-28 07:18:39 UTC
Hm, this is difficult to fix properly. I can suggest this hack:

+++ keynote-2.3-r3.ebuild       28 Dec 2012 07:18:02 -0000

Comment 3 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2012-12-28 12:24:35 UTC
While /usr/bin/ar is picked up by configure, it seems to work correctly with make:

x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar -cvr libkeynote.a environment.o parse_assertion.o signature.o auxil.o base64.o
Comment 4 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-02-20 23:26:35 UTC
+  20 Feb 2013; Sergey Popov <> keynote-2.3-r3.ebuild:
+  Export path to current AR executable, wrt bug #448904

This should fix configure issue
