Failed build.log of fricas when clisp is compiled without -no-pie

I tested with dev-lisp/clisp-2.49-r100 and sys-devel/gcc-7.1.0-r1[pie], although I guess that the same problem will occur with earlier versions as well.

Although emerge of clisp works perfectly, a subsequent emerge of sci-mathematics/fricas-1.3.2[clisp] fails with the strange error message:
module 'syscalls' requires package OS
(Failed build log is attached).

After adding -no-pie to the CFLAGS (when emerging clisp), the subsequent emerge of fricas succeeds.

Since the latest version of clisp is from 2010, I suppose that reporting the issue to upstream is pointless, and the ebuild should just add -no-pie.

emerge --info of x86 system

The attached emerge --info is from an x86 system,
but the same issue occurs with an amd64 system
(which has a very similar emerge --info, e.g. with identical package versions)

Ping - this blocks gcc-6 stabilization.
Comment 3 Chema Alonso Josa (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-10-21 20:50:25 UTC
Last version of CLISP was released 7 years ago. I guess nobody is working on the multiple bugs of this package:

With the -no-pie flag my ebuild fails at configure level. With my gcc

$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-5.4.0-r3/work/gcc-5.4.0/configure --host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/5.4.0 --includedir=/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/include --datadir=/usr/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0 --mandir=/usr/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/man --infodir=/usr/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/info --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/include/g++-v5 --with-python-dir=/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/python --enable-languages=c,c++,java,fortran --enable-obsolete --enable-secureplt --disable-werror --with-system-zlib --enable-nls --without-included-gettext --enable-checking=release --with-bugurl= --with-pkgversion='Gentoo 5.4.0-r3 p1.4, pie-0.6.5' --enable-libstdcxx-time --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-multilib --with-multilib-list=m32,m64 --disable-altivec --disable-fixed-point --enable-targets=all --enable-libgomp --disable-libmudflap --disable-libssp --disable-libcilkrts --disable-libmpx --enable-vtable-verify --enable-libvtv --enable-lto --without-isl --enable-libsanitizer
Thread model: posix
gcc version 5.4.0 (Gentoo 5.4.0-r3 p1.4, pie-0.6.5)

I have following:

$ gcc -no-pie
gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-no-pie’
gcc: fatal error: no input files


$ gcc -fno-pie
gcc: fatal error: no input files

So I chabged -no-pie -t -no-fpie and it worked.

I can confirm that it needs -fno-pie for gcc:5.4.0.

Sorry, just update my tree and realized that 3372a5ecbeaa719f733cccf67caf8f96b61f3d2c fixes it.
