Description hsk17 2022-06-20 15:30:15 UTC
due to some issues, reportlab-3.6.9-paths.patch was added to dev-python/reportlab, disabling in the logic to find freetype includes and directly setting FT_INC_PATH to /usr/include/freetype2

but now reportlab fails to emerge in prefix if the host happens to not have installed the freetype devel packages

unsure how to solve this cleanly; i did it by "inherit distutils-r1 prefix" and, at the begin of src_configure(), "use prefix && hprefixify -w '/FT_INC_DIR=/'"

Please share a build.log & emerge --info of a failed build.

reportlab-3.6.x and the patch that didn't work in prefix patch have been dropped from tree.
