Comment 4 Jan Kurik 2015-07-15 13:35:54 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Just resubmitted, without changes and it worked

Looks like the original failure was a temporary glitch:
checking for llvm pr8927... yes
This compiler would miscompile firefox, plase upgrade.
for more information.

int main() {
  return zed(foo(), bar());
due to the ld failure.

That build is for mozjs31; this bug is for mozjs24, and it has yet to be rebuilt:

Comment 7 Yaakov Selkowitz 2015-11-09 03:57:09 UTC
So there were two problems:

1) two configure tests (including that mentioned in comment 5) temporarily override {C,CXX}FLAGS but not LDFLAGS.  With the new hardened flags rules adding -pie to the latter but the C*FLAGS not containing -fPIE for those tests, the tests report a false positive (failure).

2) A long-deprecated behaviour in Perl is now an error with 5.22, causing everything to be installed unversioned.  (This is also the cause of bug 1239698.)

These are now fixed in dist-git.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 12:03:44 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
