Attachments: Patch to remove Makefile override of LDFLAGS

Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-10-11 18:45:21 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.

Patch to remove Makefile override of LDFLAGS

This package also does not respect user LDFLAGS, since the Makefile explicitly sets LDFLAGS = -s.  Both problems can be fixed by removing the assignment, so that user chosen LDFLAGS are used when linking cpudynd, rather than always passing a -s to strip cpudynd.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-12 14:05:51 UTC
Even simpler: just override LDFLAGS on emake call. Fixed now.
