Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-26 07:16:10 UTC
This is an auto-filed bug because sci-libs/cdf calls cc directly.
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.

If you think it doesn't make sense fix these type of issues, I'd like to point out that won't be possible use a different CC implementation (like clang) by setting the CC variable. So this issue has been reproduced by setting the CC variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc and by removing the /usr/bin/cc - /usr/bin/gcc binaries.

    sci-libs/cdf: fully respect AR, CC
    We were calling AR directly but also 'gcc'
    as LD. Let's just use $(tc-getCC) as LD
    given that's now the recommended way to
    call the linker, and indeed, we use
    incompatible arguments for ld anyway.
