Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-12-12 19:56:39 UTC
apparently perl-5.12.2 detects if gcc supports -fstack-protector and if so, enables it.  it should not be doing this at all and instead should be letting the gcc profile take care of things.

Created attachment 256990 [details, diff]

until upstream gets around to fixing the issue, here is a simple patch we can incorporate into the ebuild
