Description Ciaran McCreesh 2004-08-05 05:04:55 UTC
media-video/mplayer unsets CFLAGS. This causes some rather nasty breakages on certain systems, see bug #59506 (Required CFLAGS being killed metabug) for details.

Doesn't the ebuild contain why this is the case?
Comment 2 Ciaran McCreesh 2004-08-06 05:02:46 UTC
"Upstream doesn't like it" is no excuse for killing ABI flags. By all means strip out optimisation flags and use upstream's instead if they're going to have a hissy fit otherwise. However, ABI-related flags must be kept or the code produced will be unusable.
Comment 3 Chris White (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-08 21:47:28 UTC
Hmm, thought I marked this fixed... well anyways, it's fixed and uses custom
CFLAGS now.
