Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-07 12:18:15 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.


P.S.: the shared library does not get linked to libutil leaving undefined symbols around; this in turn causes tcpsound to fail as per bug #313661.

updating ebuild

Since I messed with Makefile, I've addressed multiples issue that were solved by "ebuild tricks". In the process whole ebuild underwent significant simplification.

fixing QA issues

Addresing multiple QA issues:
 - fixing parallel build
 - fixing as-needed issues
 - making static libs optional
 - introducing make DESTDIR compatibility
 - removing Makefile.PLATFORM bits, as they violate sandbox
