Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 18:11:10 UTC
I've made append-ldflags throw a warning when libraries are passed through it
to link them in.

The reason is that LDFLAGS should _not_ be used for libraries, as it has to be
positioned before the list of objects to link together, while libraries should
go after.

This mistake in commandline is what causes as-needed to either fail or not
apply at all (if LDFLAGS are put at the end).

Please fix your package not to pass libraries through LDFLAGS.

removed from 0.5.1, lets close this one when it'll be stable
Comment 2 Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2008-10-03 06:50:04 UTC
no bug report received, should be good to go stable now
Comment 3 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2008-10-04 13:59:15 UTC
amd64/x86 stable, all arches done.
