Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-04-04 11:01:05 UTC

Issue: games-arcade/gav-0.9.0-r1 calls ld 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 LD implementation (like llvm-link). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the LD variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-ld.

    games-arcade/gav: respect LD
    Much easier to just assume we're dealing with the
    compiler interface.
