Description octoploid 2013-01-10 09:50:30 UTC
After the upgrade to tcl/tk-8.6.0 dev-vcs/git doesn't build anymore:
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/dev-vcs/git-1.8.1/work/git-1.8.1/git-gui'

Running "make V=1 lib/tclIndex" in /var/tmp/portage/dev-vcs/git-1.8.1/work/git-1.8.1/git-gui gives:

invalid command name "auto_mkindex_parser::command"

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 John Keeping 2013-01-10 13:07:43 UTC
This is caused by configuring tcl with '--with-encoding=utf-8'.  It seems that this creates a broken tcl install which fails to read its own (internal) configuration:

--with-encoding=<val> sets TCL_CFGVAL_ENCODING=<val>

This is used in tclPkgConfig.c where it is passed to Tcl_RegisterConfig() which uses that encoding to decode the values in the package configuration table.  However, if the encoding is not found it completely skips reading the configuration; silently.  When this configuration isn't read, tcl has no idea where its library is located which causes everything to break.

I have confirmed that removing the '--with-encoding=utf-8' line from tcl-8.6.0.ebuild fixes tcl on my system.
Comment 2 Siuchung Cheung (Clement) 2013-01-11 08:39:34 UTC
Same problem. Confirmed suggested fix in comment 1 works for me.
Comment 3 Justin Lecher gentoo-dev 2013-01-11 09:25:11 UTC
Please use tcl-8.6.0-r1.
