Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2014-03-02 14:07:25 UTC
Fails in configure due to broken version tests for as and ld:

checking for /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/as... /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/as
checking version of /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/as... 2.23.1, bad
checking for /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld... /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld
checking version of /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.6.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld... 2.23.1, bad
configure: error:
*** These critical programs are missing or too old: as ld
*** Check the INSTALL file for required versions.

Fixing these tests doesn't help much, compilation then fails because of conflicting types with linux headers (and there I gave up).

Maybe it is time to drop this package?
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2014-05-14 10:47:27 UTC
No reply from maintaniners, therefore reassigning to treecleaners.
- Package does not build
- Security issues (GLSA 201011-01 and GLSA 201312-01 at least, CCing security)
- No reverse dependencies
