Description Marek Szuba archtester gentoo-dev 2016-09-27 09:14:42 UTC
sys-fs/fuse-2.9.7 fails to emerge when gold is used as the system linker. This is a known - and quite old - problem. The ebuild emerges fine when ld.bfd is used instead.

sys-fs/fuse-2.9.7 links with sys-devel/binutils-2.26.1

Switch to ld.bfd if is in use

The following patch is to fuse-2.9.7.ebuild , which forces ld.bfd in place of

Note that its a lot bigger than necessary because libtool is used in fuse to handle linking, and it strips out the '-fuse-ld=bfd' option that the 'tc-ld-disable-gold' function from toolchain-funcs provides.  I looked into patching libtool.eclass instead but it's a little over my head.

As this is the only consumer of the function right now I don't see much point in adding it to an eclass, so I just appended it in the ebuild for now.

gold from sys-devel/binutils-2.26.1 does indeed handle this version of FUSE well. Now that said version of binutils has been widely stabilised, the bug can be closed.
