Comment 5 Jan Henke 2019-10-22 07:43:05 UTC
I have hit this bug on multiple machines now. Unfortunately I cannot set it to confirmed.
Comment 6 Jan Henke 2019-11-03 20:44:09 UTC
I have found an upstream pull request which looks like fixing this exact issue. It would also explain why I was able to build this version in the past: The issues seems to be that ninja does not handle wildcard dependencies.

Please add the small patch from to the ebuild, there does not seem to be a release including this change as of today.

I have no idea why it took me so long to hit this bug, but that patch does fix the problem.

I had also built this without issue before,but your patch does fix the current issue. Thanks.

musicbrainz-5.1.0 was sleeping since 2017 on my disk without the need to rebuild or update.
Compiles with that patch.

adhawkins released this on 13 Nov 2014 · 35 commits to master since this release

How about a live ebuild until a new upstream version comes?

Fixes wildcard issues with cmake

Can confirm that having *.inc directly in the depends, doesn't work for me.
In order to avoid listing the inline files directly, I made this patch which also works for me.
