In the very first post, I wrote in the subject: Add
LDFLAGS="-Wl,--hash-style=gnu" to *developer* *profile's* make.defaults
- yet it seems that people just don't read the subjects of threads at
all, otherwise this conversation could not arise. I can't think of more
prominent place to emphasize the main point of the suggestion, well...
it didn't work out it seems, so - apparently wrong assumption on my

For the record, no, I didn't want to break anyone's system - definitely
not more than enabling things like I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING="yes" or
LD_AS_NEEDED="1" already does in that particular profile. The only
thing this flag ever broke on Gentoo was some weird rare MIPS stuff
(Bug 232139 and Bug 233233).

Sorry and forget about this, clearly I suck at explaining things.

Have a nice day.
