Description Wojciech Potentas 2005-03-25 16:35:46 UTC
When doing process sometimes there is such situation, that
some packages compile with one set of flags, some with totally different 
(like ncurses - it needs -fno-exceptions, and db4 needs -fexceptions - theese
flags are opposite so compilation will fail instead, if you put -fexceptions it 
will fail on ncurses, if "-fno-expections" on db4). I thought to make possible
creation of /etc/portage/packages.cflags and /etc/portage/packages.cxxflags
files with extra flags for this, so one can add needed flags to selected package.
I wrote a patch for portage but I don't know if it wokrs case don't know how to 
test it. It is in attachment.
