inconsistency concerning -fomit-frame-pointer in gcc builds
|Reported by:||Joel Kammet||Owned by:|
This issue was previously mentioned in ticket #2363 but doesn't seem to have been addressed.
In section 5.10 the explanation refers to "x86 machines" and the sed patch is written unconditionally so it is applied equally to 32 and 64 bit platforms.
Section 6.17 says "As in Section 5.10 ... apply the following" but the sed command is written in a case statement "case
uname -m in i?86)" so it is not applied to 64 bit machines (where uname -m` returns "x86_64").
If this inconsistency is intended it should be explained. And if it is not intended, how is it that it hasn't caused problems in all these years?
