Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 16:54:25 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both and, probably to avoid autotools rebuild.

This treatment is usually reserved for a few selected system packages that cannot have their autotool scripts rebuilt.

This _could_ cause maintainermode-driven rebuild (see ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch and/or and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

Whatever the problem this ebuild is NOT emerging right now with GCC 4.3.1 and GLIBC 2.8!!!!
Comment 2 Matthias Schwarzott gentoo-dev 2009-11-16 10:25:21 UTC
Ebuild removed.
