Yes, it should affect around 400 packages in the distro from what I remember
from Jeff's test mass rebuild, other distros are aware of it too and the
fixes just need to be pushed upstream or grabber from upstream if they are
Adding -fcommon is a temporary workaround but fixing the packages is
preferred, especially if those fixes end up upstream.
Right. It was ~450. The
SuSE team in particular has had reasonable
success getting fixes upstreamed -- I think Martin L indicated they'd
gotten a few dozen fixed upstream.
ISTM that fixing upstream is by far the best choice followed by fixing
with a Fedora patch. Working around via an opt-out or modifying the
flags in a .spec file is the least desirable.
