Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-14 15:57:01 UTC
This is an auto-filled bug because dev-lang/gforth does not respect CFLAGS/LDFLAGS.
The issue was originally discovered on amd64, 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.

To reproduce this issue you may want to set CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -frecord-gcc-switches" and LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,--defsym=__gentoo_check_ldflags__=0". If this is not something about c/c++ context you may want to set also FFLAGS and FCFLAGS or just see this bug as an hint to hide the QA warning where is not possible to respect CFLAGS/LDFLAGS.

Comment 2 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-05-22 18:47:10 UTC
gforth calls libtool from within gforth. Not sure if there is a way to pass through CFLAGS/LDFLAGS. Might be tricky to fix.
