media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-2.3.1:20081216-224205.log:  * QA Notice: Pre-stripped files found:
media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-2.3.1:20081216-224205.log:  * /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-2.3.1/image/opt/ventrilo-server/ventrilo_status
media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-2.3.1:20081216-224205.log:  * /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-2.3.1/image/opt/ventrilo-server/ventrilo_srv

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.

Well, that files is striped by upstream (only a binary package), so really nothing to do about it I think.

Any ideas?
Comment 2 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-05-17 10:36:09 UTC
Seems like there is no ideas on this, and since it is a binary only package, the only solution is to close it as CANTFIX.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-08 23:07:42 UTC
Should set the QA_PRESTRIPPED variable.
Comment 4 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-18 12:00:12 UTC
Has been fixed in CVS.
