Description Jan Zeleny 2010-05-27 08:15:50 UTC
According to RPMdiff, compilation contains some warnings which should be dealt with:

422  ../dist/../btree/bt_delete.c: In function '__bam_ditem_openldap_slapd_46':
   423  ../dist/../btree/bt_delete.c:88: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
   424  ../dist/../btree/bt_delete.c: In function '__bam_dpages_openldap_slapd_46':
   425  ../dist/../btree/bt_delete.c:404: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
   434  ../dist/../btree/bt_put.c: In function '__bam_irep_openldap_slapd_46':
   435  ../dist/../btree/bt_put.c:828: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
   436  ../dist/../btree/bt_rec.c: In function '__bam_pgno_recover_openldap_slapd_46':
   437  ../dist/../btree/bt_rec.c:1860: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
   450  ../dist/../btree/bt_stat.c: In function '__bam_traverse_openldap_slapd_46':
   451  ../dist/../btree/bt_stat.c:604: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules

This can be fixed by adding -fno-strict-aliasing to compilation rules.
