Comment 3 Alpha Bravo 2014-04-09 11:53:42 UTC
selinux is in permissive mode
Comment 4 Binary Runner 2014-05-27 21:32:46 UTC
I'm getting the same error both for 1.8.0 and 1.8.2 - unmasked as ~amd64, multilib system. 

Used disabling of debug and stats in package.use as workaround: "sys-apps/dbus -debug -stats" .
Comment 5 Alpha Bravo 2014-05-29 13:38:49 UTC
problem persists here, too, with sys-apps/dbus-1.8.2
Comment 6 igel 2014-07-01 12:58:36 UTC
I have the same problem with sys-apps/dbus-1.8.4 on default/linux/amd64/13.0/no-multilib.

build.log for 1.8.4 (no-multilib)
Comment 8 igel 2014-07-01 13:12:41 UTC
Oh, I forgot to mention: after the emerge failed, I did

cd /var/tmp/portage/portage/sys-apps/dbus-1.8.4/work/dbus-1.8.4 ; ./configure ; make

which _did_ compile dbus and there's even a bus/stats.o so this excludes patches I guess, leaving the ebuild as possible source of errors if I am not mistaken...
Comment 9 igel 2014-07-01 13:26:44 UTC
ah well, turns out that ./configure --enable-stats ; make  doesn't compile, so the successful compile before was just due to removed stats, sorry for spamming
Comment 10 Richard H. 2014-07-24 01:15:57 UTC
Still broken in 1.8.6 - I really would need the stats for debugging an upstream problem. How to fix this?
Comment 11 Richard H. 2014-07-24 11:56:50 UTC
I received this patch from upstream:

It worked by using epatch_user() which fixed the issue.

What's the upstream bug number?

But it's not really related.
