Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-07-21 11:18:29 UTC

Issue: games-engines/scummvm-tools calls strings directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

As per QA policy, toolchain tools must not be called directly because they can cause issue in cross-compiling and because is not possible use a different STRINGS implementation (like llvm-strings). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks] and set the STRINGS variable to x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-strings.
