Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-28 07:29:42 UTC
This is an auto-filed bug because sys-boot/sgibootcd does not respect 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.

NOTE:
To reproduce this issue you may want to set LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,--defsym=__gentoo_check_ldflags__=0". If this is not something about c/c++ context you may want to see this bug as an hint to hide the QA warning where is not possible to respect LDFLAGS.

This package is for an extremely small utility only used on SGI Boot CDs, which behave more like disk partitions burned to optical media than classic ISO9660 format.  The code is known to have stylistic issues and needs to be refactored, but it's far down on my TODO list to whenever I get around to attempting bootable SGI media again.
