On my hardened ~amd64 machine with gcc-4.7.0 I see the following buffer overflow warning during the test phase of merging mesa.

[ RUN      ] glXCreateContextAttribARB_test.NULL_display_returns_None
*** buffer overflow detected ***: glx_unittest - terminated
glx_unittest: buffer overflow attack in function <unknown> - terminated

As this problem is probably not Gentoo-specific, it would be good if you also open a report upstream at (if no report already exists) and add the URL to this bug.
Comment 3 Markus Oehme 2012-06-02 19:02:24 UTC
I posted the bug upstream at [1].

Comment 4 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2015-02-21 18:54:15 UTC
Fixed since 8.0.4.
