Description Simon Levermann (sonOfRa) 2017-01-07 16:06:15 UTC
When compiling net-mail/mailutils-2.99.98-r1 with the gold linker as the default linker, compilation fails due to unresolved references to 'ber_memvfree' and other functions from liblber.

Seems like this is an underlinking issue (mailutils links to libldap, which links to liblber, but uses functions from liblber directly)

Reproducible: Always

Newest (3.1) mailutils fails with the same errors:

/var/tmp/portage/portage/net-mail/mailutils-3.1/work/mailutils-3.1/libmu_auth/.libs/ error: undefined reference to 'ber_memvfree'
/var/tmp/portage/portage/net-mail/mailutils-3.1/work/mailutils-3.1/libmu_auth/.libs/ error: undefined reference to 'ber_memfree'

3.4 fails as well
Comment 5 Eray Aslan gentoo-dev 2019-03-27 05:22:00 UTC
Should be fixed in net-mail/mailutils-3.6.  Closing.
