Description Gino McCarty 2024-02-08 17:13:00 UTC
Support for external ell library has been stable for a long while now. We should stop bundling these together in iwd builds

patch attached

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
current iwd builds do not use dev-libs/ell but instead build their own static bundled version

iwd-2.13.ebuild patch
Comment 2 Ben Kohler gentoo-dev 2024-02-08 18:10:20 UTC
I'm a bit confused by the patch-- currently only iwd-9999 actually uses bundled ell, but you're only modifying iwd-2.13.ebuild.

I'm not sure what value there is in allowing iwd-9999 to use a (possibly out of sync) system ell copy.
