Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-31 18:42:57 UTC
This is an auto-filed bug because app-editors/e3 does not respect CFLAGS.
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". 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.

Comment 2 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2020-05-31 19:23:36 UTC
e3 is written in assembly language, therefore it is being built using nasm, not gcc.

Looks like a false positive to me.
Comment 3 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-05-31 19:36:29 UTC
It looks like a common policy is to disable the qa check on that file like is described at the end of comment 0
