Kernel build from the source linux-3.10.25-gentoo is now impossible.
The error message is the following:
ar: invalid option -- 's'

I've found a related discussion in the gentoo forum:
In the discussion, it is said that:
"There is no sane reason that I can see for including ar in our busybox package, so I have filed bug #501092 for the Gentoo busybox maintainers requesting that they remove ar from our busybox package."
So I took a look in bug #501092.
However, some related people have been debating but there is no conclusion yet.
The problem of busybox doesn't seem to have been resolved.
I think Gentoo users with ordinal skill (including me) cannot build a kernel from any gentoo-sources now.
Would you resolve the debating and the problem of busybox?
Filing more bugs doesn't help.
