Description Ville Skyttä 2007-02-10 20:12:16 UTC

clisp is built without $RPM_OPT_FLAGS, resulting in no compiler security
features and a useless debuginfo package.  Fix attached.

The clisp people generally warn against changing the compiler flags, so I would
prefer not touching them. It might seem to work at first, but problems could

Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-22 17:28:23 UTC
Well, the same can be put the other way around - packages built without the
usual optflags lack stack protection, source fortification etc compiler security
features which Fedora users expect to have applied in packages they use.

Anyway, if not using $RPM_OPT_FLAGS is the right thing to do for a package, it
should be prominently documented in the specfile, including the rationale.  And
preferably only the options identified as problematic filtered out instead of
ignoring all of them.
