1 for people who maintain a package which utilizes bindnow-flags(), please feel
2 free to modify the ebuild to no longer use this or append any such ldflags.
3 the logic for handling set*id bindings is the business of the ldso (aka
4 glibc), not for ebuilds.
6 for example, if your ebuild does:
7 inherit flag-o-matic
8 ...
9 append-ldflags $(bindnow-flags)
10 ...
12 the fix here is to simply delete those lines (assuming you're not using any
13 other flag related functions of course).
