Please add the ~alpha keyword to dev-util/valgrind-3.14.0
and also ~sparc ~ia64
Please provide a rationale behind the request.
As implemented valgrind is a jit-compiler from target into a host instruction set. Each platform has to be supported explicitly as a sizable chunk of code: instruction decoder, compiler,syscall ABI description and rudimentary ELF loader.
Currently supported platforms are defined in
Note: all of the arches you requested are unsupported today.
Rationale is that the tests for media-libs/kvazaar use valgrind and I'm trying to get them to work (bug 671146)
We can just disable those tests on those architectures, no problem.
I thought this would be a simple keywording request, not a massive effort for upstream :)
USE=valgrind is already use.mask-ed on those targets. If you can make a subset of tests optional for valgrind (and you usually have to do it anyway) you should be fine.
