Clang's ToolChains.cpp in tools/clang/lib/Driver tries to detect the distribution it runs on. Current code detects RHEL6 nut not CentOS 6, RHEL7 isn't tested for at all. Also, Scientific Linux is never tested for. This leads to the omission of the following flags at link time on C6/SL6 and on EL7 in general:




These flags are handed to the linker on said systems by both the system compiler and all devtoolset compilers. Clang wants to reproduce this bevahiour but fails because of insufficient distribution detection.

Attached patch (for both epel6 and 7) fixes this.

Comment 1 Michael Lampe 2014-12-08 23:27:26 UTC
Corrected patch:

- Take the system compiler as reference: Only el7 emmits --no-add-needed

- Don't treat /etc/lsb-release as Ubuntu only, el6 has this file too.
