Hi all,

it builds if I set eselect sh set bash.
Comment 1 into-the-trash-it-goes 2019-02-18 17:12:24 UTC
The reason is that the ebuild pollutes the environment thusly:

# sed -n 534p openldap-2.4.45.ebuild 
        emake CC="${CC}" AR="${AR}" SHELL="${EPREFIX}"/bin/bash

What happens is that libtool deduces that `print -r --` is a safe 'echo' command for ksh, but then the applicable functions end up being executed in a bash shell anyway. Of course, print is not a valid builtin for bash.

Changing the definition of the SHELL variable to be "${EPREFIX}"/bin/sh allows the compile phase to conclude successfully.

s/for ksh/for mksh/

FWIW, I'm still running into this with openldap-2.4.47-r1.

Please apply the simple fix mentioned in comment 1.
