Comment 1 orbea 2021-02-01 16:16:34 UTC
This is an ebuild problem where it fails to remove .la files which slibtool does not install by default.

  rm "${D}"/$(python_get_sitedir)/*.la || die

I would suggest this instead.

  rm -f "${D}"/$(python_get_sitedir)/*.la

So that the files will be always removed when needed and it will not pointlessly fail when they are not present.
