Diego, I like all the QA work you're doing, I really do, it's great and it's pushing FOSS further... but your bug reports are _horrible_. I just have _no_ fricking clue what's wrong. No idea what to look for, no example, no nothing.

So please, help us help you, don't open obscure bug reports that only mean something to you.

Thanks :)

(In reply to comment #2)

CFLAGS shouldn't be used for compilation of C++ files.
You should fix Makefiles (or other files) to use CXXFLAGS for compilation of C++ files.
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-05 23:50:56 UTC
Easy explanation (tomorrow there should be a post in my blog about this): there is some Makefile in the package that is building C++ code setting, inside _CXXFLAGS, the value of user's CFLAGS.

It should be fixed so that CXXFLAGS is used instead, as the two variables are well separated.

+*gnome-cups-manager-0.33-r2 (29 Aug 2010)
+  29 Aug 2010; Gilles Dartiguelongue <>
+  +gnome-cups-manager-0.33-r2.ebuild,
+  +files/gnome-cups-manager-0.33-automagic-samba.patch,
+  +files/gnome-cups-manager-0.33-cxxflags-separation.patch:
+  Do not add CFLAGS to CXXFLAGS, bug #234028. Fix automagic samba support,
+  bug #288392.
Problem was that package was defining CFLAGS in INCLUDES, so it's now patched
to separate flags in CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS/CPPFLAGS.
