Angry missing libwrap for gnome emerge


I'm trying to install Gnome, and I keep getting the "die 'econf failed'" error for gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3. Here's the error:

Code:
checking for TCP wrappers... configure: error: "libwrap not found!"

ERROR: gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3 failed
Call stack:
                           ebuild.sh, line   49: Called src_compile
                         environment, line 2572: Called gnome2_src_compile
                         environment, line 1957: Called gnome2_src_configure
The specific snippet of code:
                                    die "econf failed"
The die message:
 econf failed
I did a little research and found it may be to me missing tcp-wrappers. I remerged tcp-wrappers successfully, but I'm still having the same issue. Any ideas as to what's going on?

Many thanks.

Hello jrodia,

did you look into the log-file?

Yes. That's where I found the "libwrap not found" message.

I'm running a 64-bit version... could it be looking for libwrap in the 32 bit libraries?

well, I've tried "emerge -pv libwrap" but there is no such ebuild.
The question is if there is something wrong with your tcp-wrapper. I had sometimes the problem that such a package needed more (or other) USE-flags. But the tcp-wrapper has only "-ipv6". Are there other failing dependencies in the logfile?

No. that appears to be the only error. I've copied the libwrap.so file from /lib64 to /lib32, but that didn't seem to have any success.

Well, the "default" was your choice when installing Gentoo...
Please post the ouput of:
Code:
emerge -pv gnome-session

Code:
js-sandbox jsec # emerge -pv gnome-session

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N    ] gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3 USE="branding esd ipv6 tcpd -debug" 0 kB

Hi,

I think you're not building the latest version of gnome (on my system I've the ebuild for gnome-session-2.26.2). I'd suggest to
Code:
emerge --sync
and then try to build gnome again.

Never do this. It's a nonsense.

And if you didn't already, please, delete the copy. Leftovers like this one can really give people a hard time when trying to help you diagnose something in the future.

Then, follow the advise from markush above and try again.
