kinput2: $RPM_OPT_FLAGS not used
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
kinput2 is built without $RPM_OPT_FLAGS (no compiler security features, more or
less useless debuginfo). Fix attached.

Why don't you just patch out imake to generate proper Makefile that contains
Other tools such as autofoo aren't patched to do that either. Granted, they
respect CFLAGS and friends from environment, so it's not quite the same thing.
imake maintainers, what do you think about the change proposed in comment 2?
Kristian, could please answer this question. Isn't imake legacy stuff anyway?
I agree with comment #3, we're not patching imake (which very much is dying) to
add RPM specific flags. What we can do is to fix the Imakefiles or the
generated makefiles as the patch does, and longer term work with the upstream
projects to allow custom compiler flags, or even better move away from imake.
I meant to have a custom compiler flags rather than just having a special hack
since we could usually easily modify it in autotools by giving it before running
I don't like to move away from imake since this software is really a dead
project in upstream.
Ok, thank you for your info. will apply comment #1 then.
Fixed in v3.1-31.fc7.
