Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-11-07 21:04:25 EST
I just did a quick build of this and found some issues:

The debuginfo package seems broken; it doesn't contain any source.

The proper set of CFLAGS aren't used.  You can get them in with
  export CFLAGS="%{optflags}"
at the very beginning of %build, but that still doesn't solve the broken
debuginfo problem.  Plus this package adds some additional options like -O3
which are generally frowned upon.  Setting IGNORE_SPEED does get rid of those,
but of course you should benchmark to see if it actually makes a difference.

The -devel package doesn't own /usr/include/tomsfastmath/.

It would be nice to package the changes.txt file as documentation, probably in
the -devel package.

Noah just passed this bug over to me, so I'll reply with a new spec and srpm as
soon as I've learned enough to fix the packaging bugs Jason found. Thanks for
checking in.
Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-01-17 09:29:50 EST
Again ping?
Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2008-01-27 15:06:33 EST
I think it's time to close this one.  Unless, of course, Mamoru would like to
keep it open or whoever is driving this now would like to give us an updated
package for review.
Comment 6 Michael Stone 2008-01-27 16:47:18 EST
Closing it sounds wise to me. If I'm ever in a position where I'm able to
maintain the package, I'll reopen it. Please select whatever resolution seems
appropriate.
