Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2023-01-23 07:21:28 UTC

Issue: dev-libs/castxml-0.5.1 fails tests (LIBARCHIVE-SYSTEM).
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: libarchive_tinderbox)

(LIBARCHIVE-SYSTEM) in the summary means that the bug was found on a machine that runs app-alternatives/tar and app-alternatives/cpio with [-gnu,+libarchive] but this bug MAY or MAY NOT BE related to the tar/cpio implementation.

Seems not related to the LIBATCHIVE-SYSTEM. Fails also with app-alternatives/tar with [+gnu, -libarchive].

It is weird that it now fails, as I fixed the test suite just 10 days before.

As it turns out the bump from clang-15.06 to clang-15.0.7 is the main culprit for the failing tests. 

There seems to be two different factors

- For some of the tests the expected output (checked by the test suite) changed so that it gets not recognized as valid. There seems to be only a minority of the failing  tests with that reason.

- For a quite large number of tests castxml just fails to run with something like 
"unsupported option '-fPIE' for target 'i386-pc-windows-msvc'" or similar.

It seems questionable to keep the tests in place if they are so brittle with regard to minor changes of the underlying clang version.
