Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-02 21:52:32 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.

fixed in fcitx-3.6.2.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-25 17:55:17 UTC
Err no you didn't. You worked it around with --no-as-needed, which is not a fix and still fails with forced --as-needed anyway.

The problem is that the package passes -lXpm in LDFLAGS rather than in LIBADD.

I've removed flag-o-matic since it's no longer needed. Added two libs to DEPENDS.

fixing as-needed issues

additionally I've removed optimalization flags from AM_CFLAGS in order to fully respect CFLAGS
