You can use the post* hooks for that. For FLAGS mixing I am using CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS specific warning flags during compilation and grep for the gcc mixing warning in the build log. Probably similar things can be done for other problematic points. There was also a more sophisticated approach Diego blogged about. For respecting C/CXXFLAGS there was something Donnie suggested long ago. If you use -frecord-gcc-switches you are able to read the used LFGAS with eu-readelf. Probably someone likes to put this together in a guideline how to check a package correctly. justin
