Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-07-14 06:19:26 UTC

Issue: media-sound/rplay-3.3.2-r4 calls ar directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

This machine uses GCC-11:
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].

    As said in mask message, it's okay until you get to a lot of
    the async junk. Please don't bother wasting your time on fixing
    this, I spent a day on it and regret it, and still didn't finish it.
