Subject: [gentoo-user] emerge -K complains about -fPIC

1 I prepared some binary packages (with quickpkg) in order to have a
2 quicker downgrade path just before emerging some beta software. The
3 beta software didn't work as expected so I simply unmerged it and
4 emerged to old ones with "emerge -K". This works fine, but produces
5 this warning:
7 * Your CFLAGS contains "-fPIC" which can break packages.
8 * Your CXXFLAGS contains "-fPIC" which can break packages.
9 *
10 * Before you file a bug, please remove these flags and
11 * re-compile the package in question as well as all its dependencies
13 Why is this? I do not have "-fPIC" in my CFLAGS, but AFAIK it's on by
14 default on AMD64 anyway. In this case, why the warning?
