Description indocomsoft 2019-10-06 11:38:19 UTC
I am using Gentoo Prefix on Ubuntu 16.04. Installing clang fails because the CMAKEDIR used during configuration is the system LLVM instead of Gentoo Prefix's LLVM. Seems like this is because in clang-9.0.0.ebuild, -DLLVM_CONFIG is not being passed anymore. Adding it fixes this issue

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
emerge -atv sys-devel/clang
Actual Results:  
Configuration failed, with errors from CMake unable to read from /usr/share/llvm-3.8/cmake/ which is strange given that it is not reading the LLVM Cmake from the Gentoo Prefix

Expected Results:  
Configuration phase succeeds
Comment 1 indocomsoft 2019-10-06 11:41:13 UTC
I can see from that LLVM_CONFIG is being deprecated. Perhaps we should pass in LLVM_CMAKE_DIR or LLVM_CMAKE_PATH instead? (Sorry, a bit unfamiliar with the CMake syntax)
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2019-10-06 11:42:46 UTC
Please attach the entire build log to this bug report.

I've attached the build log and the output of emerge --info.

Note that I am using Gentoo Prefix, on Ubuntu 16.04. On the Ubuntu side, LLVM 3.8.0 is installed, while on the Gentoo Prefix side, LLVM 9.0.0 is installed
