Current 4.12 version of bibutils is ancient (in itself not a problem for me) and buggy (big problem for me): see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=613346
Please upgrade to the current 5.11 version!
For your convenience, I attach an ebuild that does the job - I used it to merge 5.11 myself. It compiles the dynamic version of bibutils, i.e. the one with libbibutils.so.5.11. The ebuild patches two files in place. It is not perfect: usually you would patch
then put the patches in the files directory and tell the ebuild to patch. I was somewhat lazy, so I used sed to edit those two files in the prepare phase. Somewhat quick'n dirty, but nothing extraordinary.
See the comments in the ebuild.
Now you have no excuse: just take the attached ebuild and bump that fine version - finally! :-)
You might have to change SRC_URI in the ebuild - but that's certainly not a problem. I downloaded the source tarball into my /usr/portage/distfiles directory manually, so I did not encounter any problems there.
My problem was: how do I specify a sourceforge URI that does not end up with all those URL parameters in the filename? That's why I downloaded the sources manually first.
I am sure you can fix that very easily in the ebuild.

We have some special syntax for sourceforge; for example,
Another thing you could do is rename the tarball after downloading it. See "Renaming sources" on
