BTW, if none of the developers currently care about the assembly workbench, what's the meaning of having an option for it in the cmake file? This option should be commented out until the workbench is back in a working state. At least a pointer noting that it doesn't build would be meaningful.
+1 on that.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

BTW, I can disable the option, or add a comment to the cmakefile fragment and prepare a PR if it's desired.
Well, that's what I mean. It's up to you to solve the issue if you think this is a problem.

This is a known issue.
just put -assembly in your use flags and it builds fine.

Or, if you really need it, you can fix the assembly module.

Cheers,

Yes, this will work, of course. I disabled the use flag for now, so it's no longer possible to try and build the assembly workbench on Gentoo.

But it wasn't a known issue. I've been maintaining the build script (ebuild) for Gentoo for one and a half year by now, and it built even with assembly use flag enabled whenever I tested it. And I didn't get any issue on github on this during the time.
Just when I did a full test of use flags again with 0.18.4 I noticed it's no longer building, then looked for an issue at the bug tracker and found the bug you mentioned and this thread.
