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.
Version 0.4 fixes the pre-strip issues by removing the calls to strip for those files. The build system still has some QA issues, such as being unnecessarily serial and overwriting CC and LDFLAGS. However, upstream has converted to autotools for their not-yet-released 0.5 release, so amending the existing 0.4 build system may not be worth the effort.
There also seems to be some discussion of supporting a CMake-based build system.
net-misc/xrdp-0.3.1 has been replaced with net-misc/xrdp-0.4.1
There is not pre-stripped files in the version currectly in portage (xrdp-0.4.1)
Since this issue is not present on latest xrdp i am closing this bug
