Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2012-02-14 08:21:34 UTC
We probably should have converted this to --disable-Bsymbolic instead, as glib converted from its own visibility hacks to -Bsymbolic-functions in ~2.26.
But there's only point in that if GObject RefDbg works thanks to that (this all is USE=debug specific, too non-negligible performance impact for normal use)

Well, as --disable-visibility is not even recognized, I guess you mean we should also disable-Bsymbolic, no?
Comment 4 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2012-03-25 10:30:16 UTC
I said that we should look if anything is necessary to make RefDbg work with recent glib with USE=debug (if it involved a performance hit for normal usage like --disable-visibility did). If that means passing --disable-Bsymbolic (which essentially replaced --disable-visibility), then that's it, but I haven't looked into the details of what exactly is necessary, if anything.

Feel free to reopen when it's clear what to finally fix or do
