Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-30 11:42:52 UTC
I'm doing some experiments with CFLAGS, in particular I've assigned a unique flag to each package, to see if the flags used to build the package "creep in" into other packages (through means of *-config scripts and similar). It seems like this happens when XS is used with perl:

/usr/bin/perl5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ExtUtils/xsubpp  -typemap /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ExtUtils/typemap  gettext.xs > gettext.xsc && mv gettext.xsc gettext.c
Please specify prototyping behavior for gettext.xs (see perlxs manual)
i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -c   -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -Wdeclaration-after-statement -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -I/usr/include/gdbm -pipe -include /var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r5/temp/flagscheck.h   -DVERSION=\"1.05\" -DXS_VERSION=\"1.05\" -fPIC "-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux/CORE"   gettext.c
cc1: error: /var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r5/temp/flagscheck.h: No such file or directory

in this case "-pipe -include /var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r5/temp/flagscheck.h" are the CFLAGS used to build perl itself, and shouldn't be used to build gettext; on the other hand the CFLAGS assigned to gettext are not being respected.

This does not seem to be the correct approach in Gentoo, to me. Can someone who knows a bit of Perl check if there's anything doable to resolve this problem?

Ping. This appears to still be a problem (Just noticed it myself.)

Can a Perl dev please take a look at this?

This is the same issue as discussed in bug 261375, I think. I'm closing this one since the other one contains more useful info by now.

(Unless OPTIMIZE is set, the perl buildsystems use the optimize variable from the perl install, which defaults to (some of) the flags used during dev-lang/perl build.)
