Ticket #457 (closed defect: invalid)
-fomit-frame-pointer in default bashrc supplied by paludis lossage
|Reported by:||codermattie||Owned by:||ciaranm|
I recently noticed the -fomit-frame-pointer option in the backtrace optimization part of /etc/paludis/bashrc. This is a marginal optimization that disables the call graph profiling feature of oprofile which is a powerful tool for real optimization.
It also broke emacs-cvs 23.0.60 which was almost unusable when compiled with -fomit-frame-pointer and worked correctly when compiled without it.
It is a trivial fix to remove it from the bashrc file. If people want the flag they can easily add it themselves. I can supply oprofile data if necessary to support my claim of emacs breakage, but I hope that this is not even a issue, just an easily closed ticket.
