Hi Hoël,

Thanks. :-)

Testing my contribution, I found out that plzip and tarlz are not
considered stable on Gentoo, although they are on Debian. This might be
because of a "bug" in lzlib, as reported here:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/721916 The bug report targets lzlib-1.11, but
I've been able to reproduce it with lzlib-1.12.

I see. It is not exactly that the lzlib Makefile calls ar directly, (it uses the AR variable), but that AR can't currently be set from configure.

I'll fix it immediately so that AR is treated just as CC and will release a corrected version soon. Thanks for reporting it.

Of course, the ebuild used to compile the library on Gentoo also needs
to be patched, and if I'm not mistaken, you're the maintainer, so I've
attached my patch to the ebuild as well. If you're not, well tell me and
I'll open an issue on Gentoo bugtracker myself. :)

I think the maintainer of lzlib in Gentoo is Michal Górny. See http://packages.gentoo.org/packages/app-arch/lzlib . In fact I know very little about how Gentoo works.

Thanks again,
