Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-30 11:39:32 UTC
I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out for details).

Please note that this bug _might_ apply to -Wl,--as-needed in LDFLAGS as well; in both cases it should be fixed. Also, if this is due to the package in question not respecting user-defined LDFLAGS, you should get to fix that too.

Check the attached build log.

Hey Markus, since this was your "baby" originally and you were the last one to touch it, maybe you would like to take official maintainership (and this bug) :-)?

Sure - I'll take over and will have a look at the issue.

I had a closer look at this bug and the failing tests
have nothing to do with as-needed AFAICT. This
package actually has no tests but unfortunately a bunch of 
C++ template code in a file called check.cpp which is
not a phony target. Hence a "make check" will try to build
this file which of course bombs. 

In any case I've bumped the package, made check a phony 
target, and made it respect LDFLAGS as well.
