Description Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-06-06 08:29:20 UTC
On a sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] systel libuting build fails as:

ar r liburing.a setup.ol queue.ol syscall.ol register.ol
make[1]: ar: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [Makefile:49: liburing.a] Error 127

It seems to be called from

src/Makefile:   $(QUIET_AR)$(AR) r liburing.a $^

without any AR detection.

This seems to be enough to get liburing compiling:
