The source of the error is in /var/tmp/portage/ncurses-5.4-r6/work/narrowc/ncurses/Makefile:
init_keytry.h: make_keys$(BUILD_EXEEXT) keys.list
        ./make_keys keys.list > $@

keys.list :     $(tinfo)/
        AWK=$(AWK) sh $(tinfo)/ $(TERMINFO_CAPS) | sort >$@

make_keys$(BUILD_EXEEXT) : \

        $(BUILD_CC) -o $@ $(BUILD_CCFLAGS) $(tinfo)/make_keys.c $(BUILD_LDFLAGS) $(BUILD_LIBS)

'make_keys$(BUILD_EXEEXT)' is built, but 'make_keys' is called.
Comment 1 Roland Bär 2005-04-20 01:57:35 UTC
Do you have an environment variable BUILD_EXEEXT=no ?
At least setting that reproduces it. BUILD_EXEEXT should be ".exe"
for Windows targets, otherwise empty.
Comment 2 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2005-04-20 02:14:28 UTC
no, but tracing the stuff I was working on, I do see that it's picked up "ac_cv_exeext=${ac_cv_exeext=no}" from somewhere, and the bug goes away when the 'no' is taken out of that line.

anyway, such a bug should still be fixed in the sources.
Comment 3 Roland Bär 2005-04-20 03:14:50 UTC
The problem is the upstream provided configure script. The affected
macro AC_EXEEXT of Gentoo looks sane to me. We should regenerate 
configure out of 
Was not able to do that, most likely some minor changes
in needed. Or should be updated to autoconf 2.59 level ..
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-04-26 20:53:59 UTC
both are valid issues ... the Makefile should actually have $(BUILD_EXEEXT) and it shouldnt matter :)

does `env -i PATH=/usr/bin emerge ncurses` work ?
Comment 5 Thomas Dickey 2005-05-07 12:01:38 UTC
Responding to comment #2, it sounds as if the configure script's been
regenerated using a different version of autoconf (which probably
would not work).
Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-05-07 18:02:27 UTC
please post a full build log ... `emerge ncurses >& log`
