sys-libs/lib-compat-1.4.2:20081214-211021.log:  * QA Notice: Pre-stripped files found:
sys-libs/lib-compat-1.4.2:20081214-211021.log:  * /var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/lib-compat-1.4.2/image/usr/lib/

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.

it's a binary only package that exists for historical purposes and is slated to die ...
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-08 23:06:57 UTC
Should use QA_PRESTRIPPED now!
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2009-06-20 11:50:10 UTC
no, the package should still die as should any package using it
