I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2008/11/14/problems-and-mitigation-strategies-for-as-needed 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.
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.

adding patch to ebuild, running autotools, adding missing depends
I've removed flag-o-matic since it's no longer needed. Added two libs to DEPENDS.

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