Description eroen 2019-09-02 11:51:16 UTC
As per bug 602126, elfutils is not available for musl, and libelf is used in stead.

Currently AFAICT, it is masked on MIPS musl profiles, but not for other arches.

eroen@occam ~ $ grep -r libelf /usr/portage/profiles/
eroen@occam /usr/local/portage/media-gfx/synfig $ find /usr/portage/profiles/ -name parent -exec grep musl {} +

We removed the mask and everyone using musl should be using the musl overlay which means you would have a working elfutils. This is needed for newer kernel releases.
