Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-12-21 21:35:26 UTC
net-nds/ypbind-1.19.1-r1:20081218-193617.log:  * QA Notice: Pre-stripped files found:
net-nds/ypbind-1.19.1-r1:20081218-193617.log:  * /var/tmp/portage/net-nds/ypbind-1.19.1-r1/image/usr/sbin/ypbind

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 ypbind-1.19.1-r1.ebuild to add a sed expression to fix the upstream

The upstream redefines INSTALL_PROGRAM to include -s, which causes ypbind to be stripped during installation.  This patch extends the ebuild to remove the unwanted -s and then regenerate the autotools files.

*ypbind-1.19.1-r2 (07 Jul 2009)

  07 Jul 2009; Jeroen Roovers <> +ypbind-1.19.1-r2.ebuild,
  Do not strip. Use emake instead of make.
