Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-11-07 08:05:42 UTC

Issue: app-text/epstool-3.09 calls cc directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

As per QA policy, toolchain tools must not be called directly because they can cause issue in cross-compiling and because is not possible use a different CC implementation (like clang). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the CC variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc.
