So whatcha been doin' Gentoo wise?

That's a good question and I'm glad you asked as although I've not been blogging I have in-fact been busy hacking away. 😛 Here's a quick summary of what I've been working on

In-case any Gentoo/FreeBSD users are reading this, the recent bumps to -sources, -libexec and -lib are for the dl_iterate_phdr backport. Right now, it does nothing. But when I finish the gcc-4 patchset I' m working on, gcc will use it to determine if it really needs to link to just like it does for our glibc users. This is important, as currently it's linked against every binary and library built, which isn't really that great. 😮

Hopefully when this is all done, --as-needed linker should work for all you ricers out there as it currently doesn't on Gentoo/FreeBSD. }😃
