Subject: [gentoo-dev] Enabling the gmp-flag by default in profiles?
Date: Fri, 08 Apr 2011 12:38:38
1 Hi all,
3 I just noticed that the use flag "gmp" is not set by default, even
4 though gmp is a mandatory dependency with gcc-4.x and should thus be
5 installed on nearly every system.
7 Are there reasons not to do so, or would it be more reasonable to
8 specificly ask the package mantainers of the affected packages to enable
9 this flag by default?
11 Please note, that I'm just a user and by quickly looking over the
12 description and homepage of gmp it striked me, that enabling gmp-support
13 by default shouldn't be problematic but even an advantage.
15 Thank you all,
16 René
