Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-14 14:17:29 UTC
I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out for details).

Check the attached build log.

This bug was reported against 1.2.96_beta, and there is now append-ldflags $(no-as-needed) in 1.2.96_beta-r2's ebuild.

That's only a workaround. But we have also 2.0.95_beta in Portage which didn't fail here with forced asneeded, therefore this is fixed by 2.0.95_beta:

+  01 Jul 2010; Samuli Suominen <>
+  speech-tools-1.2.96_beta-r2.ebuild, speech-tools-2.0.95_beta.ebuild:
+  Fix -Wl,--no-as-needed to $(no-as-needed) in -1.2.96_beta-r2.ebuild and
+  remove it entirely from -2.0.95_beta.ebuild wrt #246726.
