virtualbox-ose: --as-needed fix (patch included)
|Reported by:||Polynomial-C||Owned by:|
at Gentoo we encourage users to use LDFLAGS="-Wl,--as-needed" as much as possible to reduce the amount of packages that need recompilation when some shared libs have ABI change. For that reason we also provide the possibility to make the compiler use --as-needed during linking by default . This failed for virtualbox-ose as can be seen in . Kacper Kowalik was so kind to examine this problem and wrote a patch which I want to suggest for inclusion. Please see the attached patch.
