Description Philip Kovacs 2005-02-08 17:02:02 UTC
src_compile() {
        use debug && append-flags -DFT_DEBUG_LEVEL_TRACE

The above compile-time flag enables run-time tracing through environment variables, e.g. export FT2_DEBUG="any:2 memory:5 io:4"  in a bash terminal, in and freetype2 will show a great deal of debug information in the term, which can often be useful.

Please consider this addition.

Reproducible: Always

why only trace and not the other flags ?
Comment 2 Philip Kovacs 2006-06-20 12:17:03 UTC
Unfortunately, I reported this bug so long ago (1 year and 4 months) that I can't even remember the circumstances surrounding my need to use freetype in a debug or trace mode.

i'm going to close this bug.  if anyone does have a need for this, feel free to speak up.

Not only is the freetype issue ancient history, I think Gentoo has deprecated 
the 'debug' USE flag anyway.
