Description Aisha Tammy 2020-12-08 19:21:58 UTC
the patch calls system bc but that means it needs system bc to be installed

while true, there isn't really a way to express this since it's a self-circular loop when not cross-compiling.  ebuilds have no way of expressing "only when cross-compiling" in dependencies.
Comment 2 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-09-10 06:07:10 UTC
What we tend to do is build one for CBUILD within the ebuild if it's not already installed.
