Hi Eric,

In Ubuntu, opensc was failing to build on ppc64el because we build using -O3
by default and the compiler when running at a higher optimization level was
detecting an overflow:

/bin/bash ../../libtool  --tag=CC --tag CC  --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../..  -D'OPENSC_CONF_PATH="/etc/opensc/opensc.conf"' -D'DEFAULT_SM_MODULE_PATH="/usr/lib/powerpc64le-linux-gnu"' -D'DEFAULT_SM_MODULE="libsmm-local.so"' -I../../src -Wdate-time -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2    -pthread -I/usr/include/PCSC  -Wall -Wextra -Wno-unused-parameter -Werror -Wstrict-aliasing=2 -g -O3 -ffile-prefix-map=/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>=. -flto=auto -ffat-lto-objects -flto=auto -ffat-lto-objects -fstack-protector-strong -Wformat -Werror=format-security -Wno-error=deprecated-declarations -Wno-error=maybe-uninitialized -c -o libopensc_la-card-starcos.lo `test -f 'card-starcos.c' || echo './'`card-starcos.c

As far as I can tell this is a spurious error because the 'len' argument
could in practice never be greater than 16, so I worked around this by
suppressing -Werror=stringop-overflow as in the attached patch.

Since Debian doesn't ever build with -O3 by default, this is definitely a
low-priority issue.

Thanks for considering,
