Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-08-18 11:10:40 UTC

Issue: app-text/calibre-4.22.0 does not respect LDFLAGS.
Discovered on: x86 (internal ref: x86_at)

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.
