dbus-daemon segmentation fault on MIPS

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: MIPS dbus Cc:


dbus daemon generates a segfault at startup on MIPS (Tested on Buffalo wzr-hp-g300nh).
Tracked the issue to this:

It was due to dbus-daemon being compiled with -pie.
I removed this, and then had to change the build flags to be --gc-sections instead of -Wl,--ge-sections.
The package now builds and runs on MIPS, not sure if this will impact other architectures.
