Description devsk 2012-07-12 03:43:49 UTC
The following trivial change needs to be applied. Because LDFLAGS are meant for consumption by ld, they must be passed using -Wl. gcc does not know -m elf32_x86_64.

lirc package on x32 ABI croaks because of this.
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-09-06 04:43:33 UTC
has nothing to do with x32.  all ABIs do it this way.
