Description Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2017-12-10 04:40:08 UTC
The concept of a "get_libdir" function outside of the package manager is broken. The libdir is a value that is defined at package build time, not run time.

On a typical Gentoo system, this function will always return "lib", which is often the wrong value on a multilib system with SYMLINK_LIB=no (like amd64).

Please deprecate and remove this function.
