You receive this bug because this package does not respect my system's AR (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar) and calls directly /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)"
From the build log:
/usr/bin/ar cr libsdbm.a sdbm.o pair.o hash.o && : libsdbm.a
@ago, which version of perl you using?

And that was which version?
reproducible with 5.18.2-r2::gentoo
Try again with latest perl.
