Description David Michael 2020-07-13 15:40:39 UTC
This line kills the build if it can't find the symlink's target when not building a crossdev version of the package:

This prevents installing/updating musl in a sysroot because it uses an absolute symlink to /usr/lib/, which does not exist when the build system is amd64 using lib64.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -v sys-libs/musl  # with a sysroot profile

Actual Results:  
 * ERROR: sys-libs/musl-1.1.24::gentoo failed (install phase):
 *   (no error message)
 * Call stack:
 *, line 125:  Called src_install
 *   environment, line 2295:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *           [[ -e "${D}"/lib/ld-musl-${arch}.so.1 ]] || die;

Expected Results:  
It should build and install.

Your using an invalid profile for one, all musl profiles use /usr/lib/ they are not multilib profiles.
Comment 2 David Michael 2020-07-20 00:16:03 UTC
Nope.  Please leave the issue open for someone who is familiar with sysroots.
Comment 3 Andrew Aladjev 2020-07-29 18:04:08 UTC
Hello. I've mentioned this issue several times both on gentoo bugtracker and musl mailing lists. Everybody knows that this issue exists, but forget to fix it.

I am just using simple patch.

Comment 5 David Michael 2020-07-29 19:18:04 UTC
Thanks for that patch; using a relative symlink is the proper fix.  I've just been deleting the bad test line from the ebuild to make it work.
Comment 6 David Michael 2020-09-08 00:12:50 UTC
One note about the patch, when using split-usr (i.e. /lib and /usr/lib are separate directories), the symlink works:

/usr/x86_64-gentoo-linux-musl/lib/ -> ../usr/lib/

When /lib is a symlink to /usr/lib, there is a broken link:

/usr/x86_64-gentoo-linux-musl/usr/lib/ -> ../usr/lib/

This link works as /lib/ when the binpkg is installed in a real root, but testing the sysroot for broken links will find it.

Patch for Makefile

Suggested patch-file from upstream musl (credit to Rich Felkner, @dalias on IRC).

Please test.
Comment 8 David Michael 2020-09-11 01:21:12 UTC
It still makes a broken link when /lib is symlinked to /usr/lib:

    usr/lib/ -> ../usr/lib/

Maybe I can just put EXTRA_EMAKE='syslibdir=$(libdir)' in the environment when split-usr is disabled.
Comment 9 Rich Felker 2020-09-11 01:38:32 UTC
I don't entirely understand what you're trying to do, but --prefix etc. are usually not the right way to install in a sysroot. --syslibdir should be left alone (never changed from /lib) and DESTDIR= should be used at make install time to install to the sysroot so that the layout there will be appropriate for the target using it as /.
Comment 10 David Michael 2020-09-11 01:51:24 UTC
I am just trying to use a UsrMerge layout where /lib is a symlink to /usr/lib.  Testing the sysroot for broken links with this finds the link:

ls -l $(find /usr/x86_64-gentoo-linux-musl -xtype l)
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 18 Sep 10 21:20 /usr/x86_64-gentoo-linux-musl/usr/lib/ -> ../usr/lib/
