Lame fails to install here on a fresh install:

Comment 4 Adam Pardyl 2017-10-19 09:10:35 UTC
I can confirm this bug on a fresh amd64 default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd install (encountered while emerging chromium dependencies)
Comment 5 Peter Große 2017-10-20 12:04:02 UTC
In the commit

2 days ago, the lame-3.98-gtk-path.patch was modified and broke the build.
Reverting that change fixed it.
Comment 6 gentoo 2017-10-20 15:14:50 UTC
I can also confirm this on a fresh amd64 default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop, also while emerging chromium dependencies.
Comment 7 Ryan 2017-10-20 17:41:58 UTC
I also encountered this bug when trying to emerge kde-plasma/plasma-meta on a fresh amd64 install with profile default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma
Comment 8 Martin McClure 2017-10-20 18:33:34 UTC
I'm also seeing this installing a new system, installing lame presumably as a dependency of kde-plasma/plasma-meta. Profile default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma/systemd.
Comment 9 Ryan 2017-10-20 18:38:06 UTC
If you're looking for a quick fix, revert to the previous commit by doing: 

cd /usr
rm -rf portage
tar xvjf gentoo-fe177ad7b8aa78ca7c81a1f3b8a64d02163b6466.tar.bz2
mv gentoo-fe177ad7b8aa78ca7c81a1f3b8a64d02163b6466 portage

and then try to emerge whatever you were trying to emerge. This may not be the right way to do it, but it worked for me.
Comment 10 Aleksandr Wagner (Kivak) 2017-10-20 23:59:45 UTC
I am having this exact same issue. I made a new install today using the default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop profile. Emerging media-sound/lame-3.99.5-r1 results in the error.

However, on my system I was able to install media-sound/lame-3.100 without any errors. If you are going to follow this route, do so with caution. The package is not currently stable in Gentoo.
Comment 11 Dmitry Grigoriev 2017-10-21 01:08:16 UTC
I confirm on fresh installation (amd64, default & desktop profiles); unmasking and installing version 3.100 solved the problem.
Comment 12 gentoo 2017-10-21 07:29:26 UTC

Thanks for the hint on installing 3.100. This solved the issue also for me.
Comment 13 Ben Kohler gentoo-dev 2017-10-22 18:19:49 UTC
I think what's going on here is that the gtk path patch is still "successfully" applying at -p0 when epatch runs it, even though it's now a p1 formatted patch.  So it creates a/gtk.m4 rather than gtk.m4, and apparently triggers some more autoreconf stuff.

Forcing -p1 on the existing ebuild seems to work.
