Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-07 08:33:25 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because sys-apps/moreutils calls cc directly.
The issue was originally discovered on arm64, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
If you think that a different summary clarifies the issue better, feel free to change it.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

If you think it doesn't make sense fix these type of issues, I'd like to point out that won't be possible use a different CC implementation (like clang) by setting the CC variable. So this issue has been reproduced by setting the CC variable to aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc and by removing the /usr/bin/cc - /usr/bin/gcc binaries.

    sys-apps/moreutils: Respect compiler environment
    Now respects CC as well as CFLAGS.
    This patch is taken from upstream, not yet in
    a release.

    sys-apps/moreutils: Respect CC
    In 47abea9b0, we took the upstream patch,
    without noticing that the original (non-upstream) one
    fixed respecting CC too, while upstream's did not.
    This fixes the patch accordingly.
