Description Tobias Brink 2007-10-25 16:59:26 UTC
I'm on amd64 (stable).

Emerge of sys-libs/glibc-2.6.1 fails with the following output:

checking for .preinit_array/.init_array/.fini_array support... no
configure: error: Need linker with .init_array/.fini_array support.
 * ERROR: sys-libs/glibc-2.6.1 failed.

As a linker is mentioned: I have sys-devel/binutils-2.18-r1.

I don't know how useful it is as I normally use paludis (although the installation of glibc fails with paludis and emerge) but here's my emerge --info:

CFLAGS/MAKEOPTS etc. are the same in my paludis and portage config. The only difference are use flags but there is no difference which affects glibc.

Reproducible: Always

Remove -fstack-protector -fstack-protector-all from your C[XX]FLAGS. If you need similar features, use a proper hardened profile.
