Description Sergei Trofimovich gentoo-dev 2020-01-12 11:04:06 UTC
dev-db/libzdb uses lexicographical string version compare:

dev-db/libzdb/libzdb-3.1-r1.ebuild:	if  [[ $(gcc-version) < 4.1 ]];then
dev-db/libzdb/libzdb-3.1.ebuild:	if  [[ $(gcc-version) < 4.1 ]];then

The intention is likely to use 'ver_cmp'. See bug #705240 for hints to fix it.
