Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-04-05 22:03:01 UTC

Issue: sci-biology/treeviewx-0.5.1-r3 calls ar directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

As per QA policy, toolchain tools must not be called directly because they can cause issue in cross-compiling and because is not possible use a different AR implementation (like llvm-ar). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the AR variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ar.
