Description Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2019-12-16 14:58:15 UTC
I've had an annoying @preserved-rebuild failure for a while now:

  !!! existing preserved libs:
  >>> package: dev-libs/mpfr-4.0.2
   *  - /usr/lib64/
   *  - /usr/lib64/
   *      used by /usr/lib64/ (sci-libs/mpfi-1.5.1)

It's stuck with me since rebuilding sci-libs/mpfi fails:

  $ sudo emerge @preserved-rebuild
  error: unknown type name 'mpfi_srcptr'; did you mean 'mpfr_srcptr'?

I finally set out to troubleshoot this today, and... there's an easy fix. The unstable version sci-libs/mpfi-1.5.3 builds fine. So, I'm suggesting we stabilize it because it looks like the stabilization of dev-libs/mpfr-4.0.2 is what killed it:

Since the current stable version doesn't even build, I think it's safe enough to move forward with this...

Yes please.
