Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-09 17:19:47 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because dev-libs/concurrencykit calls ar directly.
The issue was originally discovered on amd64, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
If you think that a different summary clarifies the issue better, feel free to change it.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

If you think it doesn't make sense fix these type of issues, I'd like to point out that won't be possible use a different AR implementation (like llvm-ar) by setting the AR variable. So this issue has been reproduced by setting the AR variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar and by removing the /usr/bin/ar binary.

    dev-libs/concurrencykit: fixed several bugs
    This is a overhaul of the whole ebuild. Nothing will change for the
    user, so I will keep the stable keyword for amd64, as I will drop 0.7.0
    1) Fixed calling AR - upstream accepted patch.
    2) Failing tests on x86 - Setting PROFILE correctly.
    3) Disabling static libs - upstream accepted patch.
    4) Updated patches to use from upstreams git.
