Attached you will find a build.log of trying to build cdrtools on sparc-solaris prefix. Admittedly a bit exotic, but far from unique incident. A moderately knowledgeable user would notice that something is wrong from watching the build output for a couple of seconds. Portage however proceeds happily because make returns exit status 0.
