Why the related patch has been removed and replaced by the -fgnu89-inline flag?

Note that this probably solves the problem for building gsl, but definitely not for other packages which link to it -- they fail to build again.

I just wondered why one of my packages (orsa) failed to build [1] in the mass gcc 4.4 rebuild and was in the category "fails-even-with-43" although I was able to build it with gcc 4.3 in the summer.

Please put that patch back and try to move it upstream.

Comment 6 Milos Jakubicek 2009-02-27 20:37:03 EST
Taking back, sorry, this was caused by wrong propagation of the HAVE_INLINE macro in orsa. Nevertheless looking into gsl/gsl_inline.h, I think that the "-fgnu89-inline flag" could be removed at all -- this should be now (and it indeed seems to be) completely covered by the INLINE_FUN macro which is either set to "extern inline" (for the old gnu C) or just to "inline" (for c99).
