Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2006-05-01 06:15:56 UTC
Only happens if e2fsprogs is not already installed.

To reproduce:
emerge -C e2fsprogs
LDFLAGS="-Wl,--as-needed" emerge --oneshot e2fsprogs

Created attachment 85940 [details, diff]

This patch fixed it for me.

Maybe instead of patching this time this can be injected from ebuild, as -rpath-link is GNU ld specific (most likely) so this is going to break stuff on non-GNU linkers, so it's hardly suitable for upstream.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2006-05-07 21:17:56 UTC
fix it so it can be sent upstream then
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-07 21:30:08 UTC
Good call, I'm not sure how it can be fixed to be sent upstream, I'd have to check the other linkers what they do.

It's a binutils bug:
