Description Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-07-06 06:35:25 UTC
I was testing reverse dependencies for a new dev-libs/libevent version and found that libmemcached does not actually use libevent in any meaningful way. It has configure checks for it but has no actual code referencing libevent and neither does it link against the actual libevent libraries. "Support" for it should probably be removed, perhaps with an autotools patch that removes the check for libevent.
