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 libgcc_s.so.1 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. }😃
