Description OzTiram 2018-04-25 10:29:47 UTC
Modern versions of glibc remove rpc API. 

I was able build libvirt with net-libs/libtirpc.
I got the hint from Fedora [1].

Please post your `emerge --info` output in a comment.
Please attach the entire build log to this bug report.
Comment 2 OzTiram 2018-04-29 19:12:36 UTC
I am sorry, I am unable to do this anymore, because I re-installed my machine.
Having a glibc which does not support libvirt forced me to re-install the machine, because there was no safe downgrade path.

I am sorry, I cannot reproduce (in a clean stage-3).
