Skip 2.5.7, use 2.5.8 instead. The emmentaler fonts build/install properly in 2.5.8, whereas in 2.5.7 I was only able to use lilypond -b tex.

I hacked together ebuilds for all the dependencies that are newer than the latest Gentoo ebuilds, but I built Lily by hand, since FontForge generates the sandbox violations. Apparently FontForge wants to periodically write its status to ~/.PfaEdit which of course violates the sandbox.

However, I was just now looking at the official Gentoo ebuild for 2.5.2, and in the "src_compile" function, there is a series of 4 "addwrite" statements. So, as root, you ought to mkdir ~/.PfaEdit (if you don't already have such a directory) and then, in your modded ebuild, add an "addwrite ~/.PfaEdit" just underneath the other addwrites. Addwrite basically pokes a specific hole in the sandbox without causing a violation. I haven't tried this yet; let me know if you get it to work.

If that doesn't work, here's how to build by hand:


#set up build dir, download source
mkdir /var/tmp/lilypond-build
cd /var/tmp/lilypond-build
tar xzf lilypond-2.5.8.tar.gz
cd lilypond-2.5.8

#configure and make
export lilypond_datadir="/usr/share/lilypond"
export local_lilypond_datadir="/usr/share/lilypond/2.5.8"
make || exit 1
# use next line only if you want to install documentation
make web || exit 1
make install || exit 1
# use next line only if you want to install documentation
make out=www web-install || exit 1

#put docs and resources in Gentoo-friendly places

After a great deal of struggle, I finally got 2.5.7 to compile and

Have you prepared a set of ebuilds needed ?
I would be grateful for posting them.
I still have sandbox errors building 2.5.7 using my puny tries to
produce an ebuild :)
