1 I got this bug and as I don't know if this is correct what the user says (no
2 idea about smp), I'm posting this here for comments:
6 cite bug report:
7 I added "threads" to make.conf a while ago on my SMP machine. Now i merged
8 gimp
9 and found that it uses the flag "smp" for the same purpose. At least i think
10 its for the same purpose.
11 This is confusing and forces users to maintain local flags for same apps. I
12 would suggest that all ebuilds using the smp-flag switch to threads if there
13 is no good reason to have a separate USE flag.
14 [...]
15 This is a recent list of ebuilds using the local flag "smp"
