Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-30 11:23:49 UTC
This is an auto-filed bug because x11-plugins/wmXName fails to compile with -fno-common or gcc-10.
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} -fno-common" or compile it with gcc-10 that enables -fno-common by default.
