Comment 2 Matt Whitlock 2020-04-03 19:37:46 UTC
Created attachment 629520 [details, diff]

The build failure occurs because Inkscape uses deprecated glibmm APIs in <glibmm/timeval.h> but defines GLIBMM_DISABLE_DEPRECATED. The attached patch removes this preprocessor definition and allows Inkscape 0.92.4 to build using the deprecated glibmm APIs.

You can place the attached patch in /etc/portage/patches/media-gfx/inkscape-0.92.4/, and the ebuild will apply it automatically.
Comment 3 tt_1 2020-04-21 17:37:22 UTC
why are we even doing so much fuzz about stabilizing, if these things happen over and over again? thank you so much for the patch, Matt, this saved my life right now.
Comment 4 Alexey Korepanov 2020-04-23 10:17:59 UTC
It should be easy to add the patch to the ebuild. Why not?
Comment 5 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2020-04-23 15:20:23 UTC
One could try to call gnome2_disable_deprecation_warning instead in src_prepare phase, but not so important instead of a patch, as eautoreconf is already called anyways.
