Does "lots of other things" include PLplot (which for the benefit of
others here is one of the packages you maintain for Fedora)? It
appears to me from a quick read of the discussion in bug 12457, that
the predicted broken builds would occur for the optimized build case.
Do I have that right?
Anyway, I tried a build of svn trunk PLplot here (my Debian squeeze
system) (with -DENABLE_ocaml=OFF for other reasons) with
export CFLAGS='-O3 -fvisibility=hidden'
and for cmake-2.8.6-rc3 there were no obvious problems with that
I don't want to overly dilute what seems to be your really important
message that there are serious build problems for cmake-2.8.6-rc3, but
if nothing else, your post should galvanize lots of testing of
cmake-2.8.6-rc3 which is a "good thing". When I did such build
testing myself, the optimized build of PLplot appears to be OK for
cmake-2.8.6-rc3 on at least my platform.
