Description Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-04-10 20:33:28 UTC
If your LDFLAGS contain -Wl,--build-id, then gcc may emit a harmless message to stderr; however many configure scripts decide that this means something is wrong.
The root of this seems to be the AC_TRY_LINK macro.

dev-lang/ruby-2.1.10/configure.ac
RUBY_WERROR_FLAG([
    AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether CFLAGS is valid])
    AC_TRY_COMPILE([], [],
    [AC_MSG_RESULT(yes)],
    [    
    AC_MSG_RESULT(no)
    AC_MSG_ERROR([something wrong with CFLAGS="$CFLAGS"])
    ]    
    )    
    AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether LDFLAGS is valid])
    AC_TRY_LINK([], [],
    [AC_MSG_RESULT(yes)],
    [    
    AC_MSG_RESULT(no)
    AC_MSG_ERROR([something wrong with LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS"])
    ]    
    )    
])

Comment 1 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2016-04-10 22:35:33 UTC
The current autoconf manual has AC_TRY_LINK listed as an obsolete macro.

Comment 2 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2016-04-11 01:10:06 UTC
Actually AC_TRY_LINK ignores warnings by default.

AC_LANG_WERROR macro sets ac_${language}_werror_flag=yes variable:

$ grep -A3 AC_LANG_WERROR /usr/share/autoconf-2.69/autoconf/lang.m4
# AC_LANG_WERROR
# --------------
# Treat warnings from the current language's preprocessor, compiler, and
# linker as fatal errors.
AC_DEFUN([AC_LANG_WERROR],
[m4_divert_text([DEFAULTS], [ac_[]_AC_LANG_ABBREV[]_werror_flag=])
ac_[]_AC_LANG_ABBREV[]_werror_flag=yes])# AC_LANG_WERROR
$


configure.in of dev-lang/ruby sets ac_c_werror_flag=yes which behaves as if 
AC_LANG_WERROR was used for C language.

I'm trying to reproduce this, but with these LDFLAGS ruby configures fine and I don't see this warning in the log. Is there a way to trigger the --build-id warning?

Yes, but the documentation refers to use AC_LINK_IFELSE. In autoconf 2.69 AC_TRY_LINK is just syntactic sugar for AC_LINK_IFELSE, so the problem is actually with AC_LINK_IFELSE then.
