Description Justin Hibbits 2012-10-24 23:30:00 UTC
For PowerPC 32-bit (yes, I'm building on 64-bit, but in a 32-bit jail), the base ld segfaults when linking www/qt4-webkit.  This can be fixed by using ld from devel/binutils.


Add devel/binutils as build dependency.
How-To-Repeat: Build www/qt4-webkit on ppc32 or 32-bit jail on ppc64.

Comment 4 Justin Hibbits 2013-04-03 16:24:06 UTC
This still fails, because the linker is run through g++, not ld  
directly.  Can gcc be told to use a specific linker for this, or is it  
better to simply make it USE_GCC=4.6+?  I don't know if this affects  
any other platform but powerpc and powerpc64.
