Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-12-05 08:00:46 UTC
-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS enables assertions in libstdc++ which can catch inconsistencies and unexpected runtime state.

Fedora has used it for their packages for quite a while (with the endorsement of the libstdc++ maintainer).
