Description Thibaut Sautereau 2018-10-24 09:57:33 UTC
gdb links against both libncurses.so and libncursesw.so, but the generation of the latter by sys-libs/ncurses is tied to the "unicode" USE flag. Thus, when using a profile disabling unicode support, gdb fails to execute due to missing libncursesw.so library.

I think that "[unicode]" should be appended to the ncurses line in gdb's RDEPEND in order to force-enable this USE flag for sys-libs/ncurses.
