Description Julian Elischer freebsd_committer 2017-01-13 11:39:31 UTC
there was a test for > 1000010 but that is an error because one can use gdb after that date and some architectures require it.

that was recenty removed so now you unconditionally get   -Wno-extended-offsetof
which gcc does not support.
Comment 1 luca.pizzamiglio 2017-01-13 17:05:30 UTC
The test for > 1000010 is now changed and and the check is performed on architecture, like MIPS that still use gcc. Both checks are not optimal.
I think it's better to check the compiler type, instead of the architecture.

I'll prepare a patch to identify the compiler and act accordingly.
