Comment 2 Amadeusz Sławiński 2013-04-28 12:02:45 UTC
This one seems to be caused by gold linker, there are also two similar bugs 402967 445826

After changing to ld.bfd it emerged fine
Comment 3 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-28 16:47:18 UTC
Anything I can do to help fix it? What's special about the gold linker?
Comment 4 Amadeusz Sławiński 2013-04-29 11:35:25 UTC

I'm not sure if it doesn't break anything but here is what I found:
Linking fails on such lines:
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_open_from_file_old,qpol_policy_open_from_file@");
(this one is from libqpol/src/policy.c)

They seem to be enabled by LINK_SHARED define

#if LINK_SHARED == 1
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_open_from_file_old,qpol_policy_open_from_file@");
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_open_from_file_opt,qpol_policy_open_from_file@@VERS_1.3");
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_open_from_memory_old,qpol_policy_open_from_memory@");
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_open_from_memory_opt,qpol_policy_open_from_memory@VERS_1.3");
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_rebuild_old,qpol_policy_rebuild@");
__asm__(".symver qpol_policy_rebuild_opt,qpol_policy_rebuild@@VERS_1.3");

There is not a lot of them
# grep -R LINK_SHARED *   AC_DEFINE(LINK_SHARED, 1, [link programs using shared libraries])   AC_DEFINE(LINK_SHARED, 0, [link programs using shared libraries])
libapol/src/render.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 1
libapol/src/render.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 0
libqpol/src/policy.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 1
libqpol/src/policy.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 0
libqpol/src/policy.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 0
libqpol/src/policy.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 0
libseaudit/src/filter.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 1
libseaudit/src/filter.c:#if LINK_SHARED == 1

LINK_SHARED is enabled by default, from what I understood it is disabled for example when building with debug use flag and indeed it builds fine then.
It can also be disabled by passing --disable-shared to configure (also builds fine).

As I mentioned there are similar bugs in other packages (fuse) and seems like their upstream decided to just remove .symver due to the fact that it may cause undefined behaviour ( ).
Comment 5 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-08-27 17:24:02 UTC
I submitted it also upstream (on Aug 15) [1] but no response so far.

Comment 6 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-02 12:02:37 UTC
As there is no feedback upstream yet, I'll probably update the ebuild to select the old linker until this gets fixed. Similarly to how did it.

It's not a fix, but at least allows to continue with gold linker system-wide.
Comment 7 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-04 21:52:06 UTC
Now in tree, ~arch'ed.

Also switched to EAPI=5 and the python-r1 eclass.
Comment 8 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-03-24 19:53:58 UTC
setools-3.3.8-r4 is now stabilized.
