Attachments: build log showing failure on xfs with 64-bit inode numbers
fix ebuild to call append-lfs-flags from flag-o-matic.eclass

build log showing failure on xfs with 64-bit inode numbers

The new QA check for bug 471102 reports this issue:

 * QA Notice: The following files were not built with LFS support:
 *   Please see for details.
 * mmap@@GLIBC_2.2.5,__xstat@@GLIBC_2.2.5,__fxstat@@GLIBC_2.2.5,open@@GLIBC_2.2.5,fopen@@GLIBC_2.2.5 usr/lib64/
 * __xstat@@GLIBC_2.0,__fxstat@@GLIBC_2.0,open@@GLIBC_2.0,mmap@@GLIBC_2.0,fopen@@GLIBC_2.1 usr/lib32/

I can confirm that this is a real problem, because it makes the build fail on an xfs filesystem due to 64-bit inode numbers. The problem is solved after adding an append-lfs-flags (from flag-o-matic.eclass) call at the beginning of src_configure.

Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2015-05-27 03:00:32 UTC
the 64bit check is wrong (and we're dealing with that in bug 550482), but the 32bit check is accurate

an alternative would be to update in all the X packages to use AC_SYS_LARGEFILE everywhere
