Description TheMadHatter 2002-01-06 17:29:23 UTC
the utility is used at uncompress time of all packages after glibc is rebuilt.
a corruption of the new glibc and/or an incompatibility will create problems.
after all, that's the reason why you're using spython aren't you ?

fix is simple : 
in the source package of bzip2,
the makefile uses ${CFLAGS} (sic !) at link time.
patch the makefile so that ${LDFLAGS} is used at link time and
export LDFLAGS=--static when compiling with static or build use.

Are you sure this is a problem?  Portage is using a new update system which
should solve dynamic lib problems.  We no longer need spython and we have a
dynamic bash, so I'm setting this bug to WORKSFORME.
