Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-13 11:12:05 UTC
The package seems to be building tests during "make all" phase even though I don't have FEATURES=test enabled. For details see my blog: .

It would be nice if the tests were disabled by default and only built with FEATURES=test. You can find an example patch usually suitable for upstream on the blog above.

changing severity for easier searching.
Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2008-12-24 04:21:37 UTC
I can find no example patch from there, it is a dead link.
It is also very likely unacceptable for upstream to have to pass a separate make -C tests/, and it is also unacceptable for us to do so in src_test(). There must be a better solution.
