When emerging dev-libs/libusb-0.1.11 I get the following error:

Same problem with gcc3 and gcc4.

Comment 1 Alastair Tse (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 13:44:13 UTC
amd guys, do i just put -fPIC in the LDFLAGS or is there something a little more subtle?
Comment 2 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 14:34:12 UTC
it'd be better to fix the Makefile to build the libs with -fPIC, but I guess this package does only build libraries anyway, so append-flags -fPIC would be okay too (note that it'd be CFLAGS, not LDFLAGS)
Comment 3 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-09 14:47:48 UTC
CFLAGS="-march=athlon64 -mtune=athlon64 -O2 -pipe -fforce-addr
-falign-functions=4 -fprefetch-loop-arrays -fomit-frame-pointer
-fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden"

Is incorrect to begin with, -fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden are only valid for CXXFLAGS not CFLAGS. You should fix your cflags before you continue   I have just updated to 0.1.11 without a problem.
Comment 4 Alastair Tse (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 15:03:19 UTC
Thanks guys for the advice on -fPIC. I'd like the reporter to give some more info before I proceed as anarchy has a good point, I didn't spot that when I first looked at this report.
Comment 5 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-10 00:34:07 UTC
Indeed, I just tried, and it works fine here too. It is probably the visibility flag as it will throw out a warning and therefore configure thinks -fPIC is not a supported flag.

Please, clean up your CFLAGS (there are other redundant flags in there too) before you file any other bug.
Comment 6 Brian Cappello 2006-02-22 18:57:53 UTC
This error is caused by adding the option -fvisibility-inlines-hidden to your CXXFLAGS. This option should really be filtered out by the ebuild, IMO.
