Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2020-05-28 08:58:36 UTC
This is a legacy SLOT that doesn't have any actual problems from calling nm directly, unless self-inflected, so unlikely that anything is going to be done for this.

I think the bug here in using AC_PATH_TOOL (requires absolute path) instead of AC_CHECK_TOOL.

gtk+-2.24.32-respect-NM.patch fixes build for me.
