Description René Rhéaume 2014-03-17 01:21:42 UTC
jwhois requires an iconv implementation. On non-glibc systems, GNU libiconv provides it. However, even when libiconv is detected by configure, jwhois fails to build at the linking step with undefined symbols to libiconv_* functions. Alpine Linux has a patch for that and I simply use it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Lilblue
2. emerge jwhois
Actual Results:  
emake failed

Expected Results:  
jwhois installed on system
