Hi I've had build failures specifically on 42.3 packages that need gcc5 and up to build. The failures are due to -fstack-clash-protection, which only works with gcc7, having been added to %optflags. Strangely 42.2 builds with gcc5 don't have this flag. Is there any way to bypass this besides rewriting %optflags? Why is this flag in 42.3 builds but not 42.2? Why does this flag pass on gcc48?
gcc48 also supports this flag. I would suggest to change the packages requiring the non-system gcc5 to instead require gcc7.
Thanks Dave P
