Comment 5 Mike Lothian 2019-03-11 13:32:26 UTC
sandbox 2.15 configures, builds and installs just fine
Comment 6 Andrei Slavoiu 2019-03-11 19:48:07 UTC
I just hit the same issue. Using as well. Builds fine with ld.bfd.
Comment 7 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2019-03-11 21:23:32 UTC
This likely broke at

The 'try_link -Wl,--verbose && grep -q attempt libctest.log' does not trigger for you because gold (or other binutils version?) has uppercase 'Attempt':

> /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/8.3.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: Attempt to open /lib64/ succeeded

and falls back to lld handling. Should be easy to tweak.
Comment 8 Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2019-03-11 21:35:13 UTC
Created attachment 568738 [details, diff] is a tweak to restore gold handling.
Comment 9 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2019-03-11 21:37:24 UTC
Maybe I'm silly but any reason not to match case-insensitively (or use [Aa]ttempt) instead?  'ttempt' looks a bit silly.

Both would work. "ttempt" matches closer to existing "$AWK '/ttempt to open/...". I can change grep to [Aa] (m4 will make it a bit uglier).

v2 matches explicitly on [Aa]ttempt in both 'grep' and 'awk' calls.

Commit:     Andreas K. Hüttel <>
CommitDate: 2019-03-13 09:56:33 +0000 fix detection on
    As reported by Mike Lothian below failed as:
        $ ./configure LDFLAGS=-fuse-ld=gold
    > checking libc path... configure: error: Unable to determine LIBC PATH (/lib64/")
    The regression happened in 3c0010366
    (" add lld detection support")
    where "attempt" keyword in verbose linker log was used as a hint
    to use bfd or gold output parser. Unfortunately uses
    "Attempt" spelling.
    The change is to use the "[Aa]ttempt" substring matcher.
    Tweak the parser to also match on "[Aa]ttempt" explicitly.
    Tested on bfd, gold and lld.
