Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2022-12-29 07:33:03 UTC

Issue: dev-util/perf-6.0 adds -Werror flag on its own.
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: dash_tinderbox)

(DASH-SYSTEM) in the summary means that the bug was found on a machine that runs /bin/sh as dash but this bug MAY or MAY NOT BE related to dash.
-Werror is not recommended for releases and should always be disabled when encountered in build-logs, because there are numerous cases where this breaks without purpose.
