Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-29 19:40:41 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).

Please note that this bug _might_ apply to -Wl,--as-needed in LDFLAGS as well; in both cases it should be fixed. Also, if this is due to the package in question not respecting user-defined LDFLAGS, you should get to fix that too.

Check the attached build log.
