Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-10 08:39:14 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because app-editors/e3 calls ld 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 LINKEr implementation (like llvm-link) by setting the LD variable. So this issue has been reproduced by setting the LD variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ld and by removing the /usr/bin/ld binary.
