Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-10-09 23:00:37 UTC
Portage warns about pre-stripped files being installed into the image directory; this is a bad thing since it makes Portage's splitdebug feature useless, and it stops the users and the developers from looking into backtraces with full debug information available.

For the developers going to look into it, what you have to look out for, to
find what is stripping the files, is one of these conditions:

- explicit "strip" command run on the produced files;
- "install -s" command to install the binary files;
- "-Wl,-s" flag passed during linking

Remove the "strip" commands, remove the "-s" option at install, and remove
"-Wl,-s" and the problem should be gone.

Created attachment 245161 [details, diff]
Fixes mangling of *FLAGS at the buildsystem level, adds --disable-strip

I added a --disable-strip option instead of removing it completely in hopes of making the patch upstreamable.

net-irc/oer removed as upstream abandoned it and there were bugs.
