Comment 1 Alessandro Barbieri 2021-03-13 21:48:14 UTC
Created attachment 691239 [details]

Comment 2 Alessandro Barbieri 2021-03-13 21:51:39 UTC
I'm using SHELL=/bin/dash and CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/dash
Comment 3 Ionen Wolkens gentoo-dev 2021-03-14 06:14:02 UTC
This seems to be due to a combination of slibtool and CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/dash, individually both work.

Furthermore, /bin/sh == dash + slibtool works fine too, seems to be because you're setting CONFIG_SHELL.

> Furthermore, /bin/sh == dash + slibtool works fine too, seems to be because you're setting CONFIG_SHELL.

Does it actually use /bin/sh without CONFIG_SHELL?

This looks suspicious:

  slibtool --tag=disable-static
Comment 5 orbea 2021-03-20 19:44:16 UTC
Fails with CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/mksh too, it does not fail with CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh when mksh == /bin/sh.
Comment 6 orbea 2021-03-20 20:28:15 UTC
I think this is a slibtool bug.

In slibtool both /bin/sh and /bin/bash are hardcoded so that the options, '-c -o 0 -g 0' are passed to install-sh while when using /bin/dash or /bin/mksh they are passed to passed to the shell instead.

I think slibtool should probably not assume /bin/sh or /bin/bash.

Its also arguably that sudo should not be using install-sh to install .la files and that users should probably set their /bin/sh symlink appropriately instead of setting CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/dash, if necessary set CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh.
