Description Roman 'gryf' Dobosz 2019-06-15 10:46:15 UTC
After switch to 17.1 profile, jpilot stop to load its plugins (there are three of them in jpilot distribution: time sync, expense and keyring).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge jpilot
2. run it
Actual Results:  
No plugins menu available (there is no plugins in expected /usr/lib directory)
Executing "qlist jpilot|grep plugins" gives:


Expected Results:  
Available plugins.

There is assumption in Jpilot sources, that {prefix}/lib/jpilot/plugins is used for plugins searching in Linux distributions. Lucky for us, Irix have three type of binaries and uses 3 different locations for them. Those three locations are supported in Jpilot, so for amd64 architecture, it is easy as set ABILIB environment variable to 'lib64' before configuring and compiling Jpilot. So inthe ebuild it might be set by replacing src_configure with:

src_configure() {
	if use amd64; then
		export ABILIB="lib64"
	econf $(use_enable nls)

Probably, for other 64 architectures it might applied.

I know, I could do this by setting appropriate script and entry in /etc/portage/package.env, but I think ebuild should just work.
