Bug#605027: gcj-4.4: contains and compiles twice embedded code copies of zlib
 
Source: gcj-4.4
Version: 4.4.5-2
Severity: important

While compiling gcc-4.4_4.4.5-8 as gcj-4.4_4.4.5-2+m68k.1 I noticed,
and confirmed by looking at buildd logs of gcj-4.4_4.4.5-2 that it’s
not a local problem, that GCC not only contains an embedded code copy
of libz but also compiles it (at least) twice; once for the build sy-
stem and once for the target system (even on native builds). I cannot
outright say it’s not used, hence the severity. As zlib has had a few
issues in the recent past, you might want to look at it.

Grep for infback in that log.

(No status on my build, as it’s still running…)
