all available ebuilds at current time,
Produce a segmentation fault when trying to compile ppmpat.c

ouput is as follows,

-O3 -pipe -falign-functions=4 -fprefetch-loop-arrays -ffast-math
-fomit-frame-pointer -Wall -Wno-uninitialized  -o ppmpat.o

CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc -O3 -pipe -falign-functions=4

^^I don't recall setting that lot, so I believe it crept in via a system update
at some point, will try compiling with CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc
-mtune=ultrasparc -O2"
Comment 1 Colin Morey (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-22 18:24:09 UTC
Tried with,
CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc -O3" - failed
CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc -O2" - failed
CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc -O"  - failed
Comment 2 Colin Morey (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-22 18:50:35 UTC
CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc" appears to have worked!
this is -=> media-libs/netpbm-9.12-r3
Comment 3 Colin Morey (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-23 00:55:44 UTC
are also fine with CFLAGS="-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc"
Comment 4 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-05-12 22:57:42 UTC
Sorry for the lateness in the reply, my bugzilla queries weren't picking this up.  Is this still a problem for you?
Comment 5 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-05-13 08:53:09 UTC
I tested this and it was still failing.  I updated netpbm-9.12-r4.ebuild to filter out -O flags and committed to portage.  netpbm-10.11.5-r2.ebuild works fine for me.
