Subject: [gentoo-dev] Default USE changes for fortran and mudflap?
Date: Sun, 12 Jan 2014 07:44:51
1 While I'm adding USE defaults to toolchain.eclass and moving them out of the
2 profiles, I thought now would be a good time to review a couple default flag
3 settings.
5 mudflap:
6 This is currently enabled by default but I'd like to disable it. It controls
7 libmudflap and the -fmudflap flag. I think the only reason this flag exists is
8 so we can disable it in crossdev. It's not required by anything in the tree,
9 the code is bitrotten and has been removed for GCC 4.9. If you know how to use
10 -fmudflap, you know how to set a USE flag.
12 fortran:
13 Do we want to keep enabling fortran by default? The majority of users will
14 never get the urge to install a fortran package, and the fortran eclass handles
15 those that do. I think it should be treated as all the other optional
16 languages and disabled by default, but I'd like to know if there are other
17 opinions.
