Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-04-21 06:31:39 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because dev-db/cdb calls ar directly.
The issue was originally discovered on arm64, 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.
