Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-04-20 06:45:12 UTC

Issue: games-util/higan-purify-03 calls g++ 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 C++ implementation (like clang++). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the CXX variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++.
