Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-04-18 10:20:56 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because app-crypt/pinentry calls ar directly.
The issue was originally discovered on x86, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

To reproduce this issue you may want to temporarily move the /usr/bin/ar binary.
