Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-11 15:42:24 UTC
Your package is runtime-depending on app-doc/doxygen standing to . app-doc/doxygen is a tool used almost always at build-time, (it's either a build system or a generator - sorry this is a generic template I start with so I can't tell you right away which one). This means that it should only be depended at build-time.

Please correct your ebuild or document why it is used as a runtime-dependency so that it will not be suspected again.

Hmm, it doesn't build with GCC 4.3, when adding the missing includes I get warnings that make me suspect the code is broken, the last release on sourceforge is from 2005, it's not used by anything in the tree except vdkbuilder. I think this would be a good time to remove it, unless anyone wants to do the work to get this in better shape.

The patch from here does allow 4.0 to compile with gcc 4.3.3 on amd64
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-01-30 15:14:23 UTC
CCing treecleaners as vdkbuilder will also go and is the only consumer
