Comment 2 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-08-18 06:42:59 UTC
Created attachment 443636 [details, diff]

Given the fact that we don't have binutils versions in portage that do not have zlib support, something small like the attached patch might be sufficient to make use of system-zlib in >=binutils-2.26

We should keep in mind to also add "--with-system-zlib" to any newer sys-libs/binutils-libs package once it gets a newer version.
Comment 3 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-10-07 08:03:13 UTC
Guys, this is a trivial change with no side effects.

I will commit this change in about a week if nobody from toolchain team takes care of it before.

Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2016-11-15 06:51:55 UTC
(In reply to Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) from comment #2)

the version in the tree doesn't matter -- the eclass supports versions in the overlay too which dates back to at least 2.14

should be fixed for all versions now with this update:
