Description Till Maas 2007-10-18 16:52:57 EDT
Description of problem:

According to Rex Dieter[1] qmake-qt4 should honour $RPM_OPT_FLAGS by default,
e.g. when the Makefile for vym is generated, it should contain the contents of
$RPM_OPT_FLAGS in (C|CXX|L)FLAGS, but it does not do this always (or maybe
never), e.g.:

[1] https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2007-October/msg01447.html

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Always, first seen on a local Fedora 7 build.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use qmake-qt4 on vym.pro from
Actual results:

contents of $RPM_OPT_FLAGS do not appear, e.g. -fstack-protector or

Expected results:
Everything should be compiled with at least these flags:

-O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector
--param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m32 -march=i386 -mtune=generic

Additional info:

If this is not only a problem of vym, but other packages built with using qmake,
then they should be rebuild with the correct flags, because they add protection
against some security flaws. Therefore I add F8Blocker to "Blocks".

This is most likely a bug in vym, not qt4. 

I'll go take a closer look.

For examples, see
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-10-18 21:52:12 EDT
vym.pro needs
CONFIG += ... release
instead of 'debug' in there somewhere to inherit the proper flags.

'debug' targets purposely omit optimization flags.
