Description Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-14 23:42:23 UTC
this is a request that the value of LDFLAGS as (if) set in /etc/make.conf be added to the environment information provided by 'emerge info'.  it's becoming more and more common that users are adding this setting to their make.conf's, and there are cases on file where LDFLAGS can break an emerge (ref: ).

i think this addition would provide another useful piece of information for developing, troubleshooting, and bug-hunting, while not having any negative repercussions (that i can think of).

Reproducible: Always

There's a long list of variables that all have the possibility to negatively affect a compile, but they can all be listed in the basic output.
emerge --verbose info will provide everything in the environment, if necessary.
