Description Will Simoneau 2019-03-28 14:22:07 UTC
media-libs/zimg-2.7.5.ebuild uses CPU_FLAGS_X86="sse" to control the --{enable,disable}-x86simd flag passed to the configure script. This looks wrong even at face value: CPU_FLAGS_X86="sse" is supposed to control usage of SSE1 *only*.

On Pentium3 (CPU_FLAGS_X86="mmx mmxext sse"), this results in the build attempting to use SSE2 instructions even though the target does not support them.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Build media-libs/zimg-2.7.5 for an x86 target with >=SSE2 disabled.

current stable also has this issue

what USE flag should be used instead ? :/

Well, part of the problem is that the configure script only seems to provide an on/off flag:

  --disable-simd          Disable SIMD code. (default=no)
