Yes, you are referring to https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=326275 I do believe this was already mentioned in the thread. :) On my build host, I have made preserve_old_lib() do nothing because I expect my build host to always have the proper linking and it can tolerate temp breakage as long as my client gets the proper packages in the end. -Jeremy
