Description Jack 2018-01-06 17:05:27 UTC
I am only assuming this is due to >=enchant-2, but if that's not the reason, there is some other problem.  I have enchant 2.1.1 installed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge >=app-text/enchant-2
2. try to emerge dev-python/pyenchant (only 1.6.6 and ~1.6.8 are in tree now)
Actual Results:  
emerge failure (I will attach build.log)

Expected Results:  
emerge success

If this is the correct reason, then this but should block 629838.

build.log from pyenchant (~)1.6.8
Comment 2 Jack 2018-01-06 18:24:33 UTC
There is a pyenchant 2.0.0 which emerges without problem for me, simply copying the 1.6.8 ebuild to 2.0.0.  I'll be glad to file a separate version bump request, unless this bug is sufficient.

    dev-python/pyenchant: bump to 2.0.0, supports enchant 2, Py3.7+PyPy3
    * This new version works with enchant v1.x and v2.x so we can get rid of
      ${PV%.*} in RDEPEND.
    * app-dicts/myspell-en must be installed to avoid the failure from bug 659258.
    * Tests are fine as long as a UTF-8 locale is present, not necessarily
      en_US.UTF-8, remove the locale check from python_test.
    * When using a non-English locale, one test might fail, so it's
      commented out and the failure is reported upstream.
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.43, Repoman-2.3.10
