Description Ville Skyttä 2007-01-28 23:47:36 UTC
BibTool does not honor $RPM_OPT_FLAGS, resulting in no-no such as no compiler
generated security features and more or less useless debuginfo.  The included
configure script fails to affect the optflags used during compilation.

Patch attached, however this seems to cause build failures in
regex-0.12/regex.c, suggesting that there's some more work to be done.

glibc contains a regex library which looks similar to this (see
/usr/include/regex.h), perhaps it should be used instead of the bundled copy?

Honor optflags

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2007-01-29 18:00:22 UTC
It should be fixed in 2.48-6, with system regex used.
There are tons of warnings, I am not willing to fix them.
I didn't used the system regex because of a comment in 
makefile, but I hope it will be right anyway. regex-0.12
is very outdated.

Because it may break with the system regex, I only update
in devel.

Thanks for the report.
