Log :

In file included from /usr/include/glib-2.0/glib.h:62,
                 from /var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/greenbone-security-assistant-9.0.1/work/gsa-9.0.1/gsad/src/gsad.c:51:
/var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/greenbone-security-assistant-9.0.1/work/gsa-9.0.1/gsad/src/gsad.c: In function ‘main’:
/var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/greenbone-security-assistant-9.0.1/work/gsa-9.0.1/gsad/src/gsad.c:3321:45: error: ‘sys_siglist’ undeclared (first use in this function)
 3321 |           g_debug ("Received %s signal.\n", sys_siglist[termination_signal]);

Solution :

From the release notes of glibc 2.32,

The deprecated arrays sys_siglist, _sys_siglist, and sys_sigabbrev
are no longer available to newly linked binaries, and their declarations
have been removed from <string.h>. They are exported solely as
compatibility symbols to support old binaries. All programs should use
strsignal instead.
