Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2021-06-28 19:48:54 UTC
We plan to deprecate the PROFILE option / _p.a archives - see https://reviews.freebsd.org/D30833.

Clang upstream and in base no longer links against _p.a archives when -pg is specified:

    clang: stop linking _p libs for -pg as of FreeBSD 14
    In FreeBSD 14 we will stop providing _p libraries (compiled with -pg).

We'll need to make the same change in gcc. AFAICT at present only libc_p.a and libpthread_p.a have this special case in gcc.

I understand andreast@ has a patch for upstream in the works. Thank you!
