Description Martin Väth 2009-02-07 22:24:23 UTC
Since gcc-4.3.3 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 is set implicitly. This causes
seamonkey-1.1.14 to fail with a buffer overflow already during emerge
(see below). A similar problem was there with earlier firefox-versions,
but apparently firefox has been fixed in this respect:

*** buffer overflow detected ***: /usr/lib/seamonkey/regxpcom terminated
>>> Regenerating /etc/
>>> Original instance of package unmerged safely.
*** buffer overflow detected ***: /usr/lib/seamonkey/regxpcom terminated
>>> Regenerating /etc/
Comment 1 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-14 15:36:57 UTC you say that building seamonkey with gcc-4.3.3 fails, no? It doesn't here, and i don't see FORTIFY during the build.
