Portage warns about pre-stripped files being installed into the image directory; this is a bad thing since it makes Portage's splitdebug feature useless, and it stops the users and the developers from looking into backtraces with full debug information available.
For the developers going to look into it, what you have to look out for, to
find what is stripping the files, is one of these conditions:
- explicit "strip" command run on the produced files;
- "install -s" command to install the binary files;
- "-Wl,-s" flag passed during linking
Remove the "strip" commands, remove the "-s" option at install, and remove
"-Wl,-s" and the problem should be gone.
app-accessibility/mbrola-3.0.1h-r5:20081211-004909.log: * QA Notice: Pre-stripped files found:
app-accessibility/mbrola-3.0.1h-r5:20081211-004909.log: * /var/tmp/portage/app-accessibility/mbrola-3.0.1h-r5/image/opt/mbrola/mbrola
Unfortunately, this is a closed-source package, so upstream is stripping
the binary. I'm guessing that the only way to avoid the message you are
seeing will be to disable the check, but I'm not sure how to do that.
RESTRICT="strip" has been added so that portage does not attempt to strip
Thanks for the report.
