If you think that a different summary clarifies the issue better, feel free to change it.

Issue: sys-auth/passwdqc does not respect LDFLAGS.
Discovered on: amd64

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 (with QA_FLAGS_IGNORED) where is not possible to respect LDFLAGS.

Thanks, this is one of the cases where gentoo's ldflags can be ignored.
