Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-19 21:06:57 UTC
This is an auto-filed bug because dev-util/bloaty does not respect CFLAGS/LDFLAGS.
The issue was originally discovered on amd64, but it may be reproducible on other arches as well.
If you think that a different summary clarifies the issue better, feel free to change it.
Attached build log and emerge --info.

To reproduce this issue you may want to set CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -frecord-gcc-switches" and LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,--defsym=__gentoo_check_ldflags__=0". If this is not something about c/c++ context you may want to set also FFLAGS and FCFLAGS or just see this bug as an hint to hide the QA warning where is not possible to respect CFLAGS/LDFLAGS.

Comment 2 ngg 2020-05-24 13:13:20 UTC
I've created a PR in which I bumped the version to 1.1, also added a live ebuild and added myself as proxy maintainer.
I checked that the new ebuilds respect CXXFLAGS/LDFLAGS (there are no C source files, so CFLAGS seems to be irrelevant).
