Description David Michael 2019-12-30 05:20:04 UTC
I tried to build hfsutils for a G4 CPU from an x86_64 workstation, and it fails due to trying the regular gcc with the cross-CFLAGS during configure.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge sys-fs/hfsutils  # (using a cross-compiler profile)
Actual Results:  
Fails, logs are attached.

Expected Results:  
It should build properly.

Setting the CC environment variable to the cross-compiler fixes it.
