If this bug has already been reported to you, please ignore this mail.

The Gentoo bug report is here:


From what I read here, the bug is waiting for a fix upstream:


"Anyone using the new build environment will be affected, since this is a build 
bug in app-text/a2ps. In older build environments, the bug went unnoticed 
because the system headers happened to include the required file. Now they do 
not, and a2ps does not either, so the definition is simply missing.

Technically, this is a bug in the upstream package, not in the ebuild. Portage 
lists the homepage for app-text/a2ps as http://www.inf.enst.fr/~demaille/a2ps/. 
Strangely, that homepage says the latest version is 4.13, but everyone 
reporting problems is reporting with version 4.14. After some searching around 
on the homepage, it appears that they only accept bug reports via e-mail. As 
such, it is not possible to tell whether anyone has reported this build failure 
to them."
