Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2023-01-25 18:57:50 UTC

Issue: sys-cluster/pmix-4.2.2-r1 adds -Werror flag on its own (USR-MERGE-SYSTEM).
Discovered on: amd64 (internal ref: usr-merge_tinderbox)

(USR-MERGE-SYSTEM) in the summary means that the bug was found on a machine that runs default/linux/amd64/17.1/systemd/merged-usr profile but this bug MAY or MAY NOT BE related to the new profile.
-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.

    sys-cluster/pmix: stop enabling -Werror via ./configure
    The aptly-named --enable-werror flag provided by upstream will carefully
    enable -Werror in CI builds, even if you pass --disable-werror or
    --enable-werror=no. This excellent diagnostics pass brought to you by
    the world's most intuitive string validation and checking library, GNU
    It is unclear to me why "sys-cluster/pmix: add 4.2.2" entailed adding
    this configure option. The option was new in that version bump but
    refraining from passing the option would do the correct thing...
