Summary0004631: the sudo warning seems like a false positive
Descriptionconfigure: NOTICE: --with-sudo not specified and not running as 'root', will not install GNS NSS library

This seems unnecessary with current HEAD and even many revisions before that, the gns related files are installed even when sudo is not in the environment, and even when the build environment is so restricted that root and sudo are not in place.

I assume that this is now a false negative.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is low priority, I will look into this and see when I can come up with a patch to fix this.

Platforms I tested it on are Guix and Gentoo.

Eh, I think they may be installed, but not in the location where NSS would like them and would use them, right?

Where does NSS expect them to be? What kind of information do you need? ldd output on the file(s) on Gentoo and Guix?

On my system, the NSS plugins must be in /lib/i386-linux-gnu/. But I think /lib/ would also do. Regardless, without 'root' you're unlikely to install stuff at that location. Try looking for libraries named "libnss_*.so".

I've updated the conditions when the message is printed to be more accurate, and to display the installation path IF we attempt an installation: c2d896668..d4c6f4e5e
