I'm trying to add Plymouth support to my Dracut initramfs. When sys-boot/plymouth-0.8.4 is emerged, it compiles fine but when it comes to installation, it fails, with the following error (key line highlighted):
Code:

 * ERROR: sys-boot/plymouth-0.8.4 failed (install phase):
[b] *   rm '/var/tmp/portage/sys-boot/plymouth-0.8.4/image//usr/lib64/plymouth/*.la'[/b]
 *
 * Call stack:
 *     ebuild.sh, line  93:  Called src_install
 *   environment, line 3072:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *               rm "${la}" || die "rm '${la}'";
 *

The problem is that it tries to remove files which aren't there. I am not really sure what to do about this. Should I file a bug?

Okay I have a temporary solution working now. I just removed the offending invocation of rm from the ebuild file.

I wonder if anyone has any better ideas? If I file a bug report, I assume it's with the Gentoo developers rather than the Plymouth ones since this problem appears to be related to the ebuild process.

Yes, please file a bug. If the relevant libtool files are never present, then the ebuild should not try to delete them. If they are conditionally present, then it needs either to ignore their absence or to delete them only when they were generated.
