Description Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2015-03-07 22:22:36 UTC
I reported this problem upstream at:

but it looks like upstream is lame.  No new commits since Sep 13, 2013.

In a nutshell, lib/fdbuf/fdobuf.h references uid_t and gid_t which are defined in unistd.h by POSIX.  Because these definitions are indirectly pulled in in glibc, it works there, but on other c standard libs, like musl, it fails.  The fix is trivial, just add `#include <unistd.h>` to fdobuf.h.

This change fixes the musl issue and is harmless on glibc and uclibc.

Can I add this without a revbump?
