Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-10-24 18:13:42 UTC
I'm filing this bug (from a template, mind you) because the ebuild I'm reporting it against failed to build once I removed my /usr/bin/{gcc,cc,c++,c99} binaries. This means that the ebuild is relying on gcc or cc as compiler, while it should use "$(tc-getCC)" so that user choices are respected, and cross-compiling works as intended.

This usually comes down to one of these tasks:

- use emake CC="$(tc-getCC)" for building, to ovewrite make's CC variable (defaults to "cc", some upstream rewrites it);
- the above plus replacing explicit "gcc" (or similar) calls with $(CC) so that the variable is actually respected;
- tc-export CC in src_compile before eventual econf.

For C++, you'd have to replace CC with CXX everywhere above, of course.

If your package is a special case on this, please let me know.

Patch to ebuild to set CC when calling make

The upstream Makefile conditionally sets CC to gcc if nothing better was offered.  This patch modifies the ebuild to use a non-default src_compile so that make can be passed CC=$(tc-getCC).
