Description Bjorn Pagen 2018-01-06 22:23:02 UTC
During it's configure phase, musl's configure script checks if compiler_rt exists by checking if the library libcompiler_rt.a exists, which it doesn't.

The compiler_rt package installs only these packages:

partridge / # equery f compiler-rt
 * Searching for compiler-rt ...
 * Contents of sys-libs/compiler-rt-5.0.1:

I fixed the issue creating a symlink from /usr/lib/clang/5.0.1/lib/linux/libclang_rt.builtins-x86_64.a to /usr/lib/libcompiler_rt.a

I propose that the compiler-rt ebuild should do this automatically.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uninstall gcc on musl
2. Install clang
3. Try to compile musl
Comment 5 Bjorn Pagen 2018-01-09 02:37:50 UTC
I am doing this with the compiler as clang, and gcc is uninstalled. /usr/bin/cc is a symlink to clang. 

This error does not occur under gcc, as musl links against libgcc_s if gcc is installed, alleviating the problem.

Seems this was discussed on llvm mailing list?

I think this was fixed a while back:
