Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-07-29 06:34:09 UTC

Issue: sci-libs/cdf-3.8.0-r1 calls ranlib directly.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: ci)

This machine uses GCC-11:
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 RANLIB implementation (like llvm-ranlib). To reproduce, please use sys-devel/gcc-config[-native-symlinks], sys-devel/binutils-config[-native-symlinks].
