Try to replace GNU libtool with sys-devel/slibtool slibtool is aimed to be a drop-in replacement although at the current state it still has a couple of hiccups. I've created a tracker bug at  to track all issues arising from using slibtool instead of GNU libtool.

Hi, there is now a saved search in bugzilla "m-n PATCH" which you can add to your bugzilla footer. It shows all open tickets, which are assigned to maintainer-needed AND have the keyword PATCH https://bugs.gentoo.org/buglist.cgi?cmdtype=dorem=m-n PATCH=run Currently there are 54, some are very old. Please help to get these closed. Thank you very much -- Best Jonas

There's a comment on the bug today : Alex Belits 2021-01-17 07:57:52 UTC Compiles just fine with GCC 9.3.0. Bugs are mostly lack of compatibility with non-Linux platforms and hanging with bad OpenGL implementations. I just remerged it on my stable system without any problems. The latest Gentoo update was 2020-12-05 . It provides a set of extra screesavers for Xscreensaver which are attractive enough to be worth keeping available. -- ,, SUPPORT ___//___, Philip Webb ELECTRIC /]     | Cities Centre, University of Toronto TRANSIT`-O--O---' purslowatcadotinterdotnet
