Yeah, I think fix like that would be useful even for our amd64 nomultilib profile.
I think of something along the lines:

  •           binpkg_libdir=${binpkg_libdir#${WORKDIR}/usr/}
  •           if [[ ${binpkg_libdir} != $(get_libdir) ]]; then

But it requires a bit more relocations across the places to look exactly the same way it would be installed from sources.

$(get_libdir) returns "lib" in amd64 profile. "lib64" appears amd64 and ppc64 binary.

・if [[ ${binpkg_libdir} != $(get_libdir) ]]; then

using as follws?:

cp "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghc-pkg-${PV}" "$gp_back" || die "unable to backup ghc-pkg wrapper"
     # Relocate from /usr to ${EPREFIX}/usr
if [[ ${binpkg_libdir} != $(get_libdir) ]];
    relocate_path "/usr" "${to}/usr" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghc-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghci-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghc-pkg-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/hsc2hs" \
    relocate_path "/usr" "${to}/usr" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghc-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghci-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/ghc-pkg-${PV}" \
    "${WORKDIR}/usr/bin/hsc2hs" \

it causes emerge error as follows:
environment, line 3724: Called die

  • The specific snippet of code:
  •       sed -i -e "s|$from|$to|g" "$file" || die "path relocation failed for '$file'";
