Error on make build... program 'ar' missing.

Post by sox2000 »

Hello peeps,

Trying to build gar-minimyth-0.21.0-64

I get the error:

error: your system does not contain the program 'ar' (from package 'binutils').

ar is contained in /usr/bin/

/usr/bin is in the user's path. I'm not sure how to fix this problem. Any pointers?

This could happen if (1) the build was not done in meta/minimyth, or (2) the build fails before completing the building of binutils and gcc.
