Description René Rhéaume 2015-09-07 16:18:40 UTC
mingetty source code calls iconv but does not specify "-liconv" at link time, so linking fails at least on uclibc, which does not include iconv functionnality, but uses GNU libiconv.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge mingetty
Actual Results:  
emake failed

Expected Results:  
mingetty installed on system

I also updated the ebuild to EAPI=5 in the process.
