Source: webkit2gtk
Version: 2.26.3-1
Severity: normal
User: debian-powerpc at lists.debian.org
Usertags: powerpc


The Gold linker is causing issues on powerpc which can be fixed by simply
linking webkit2gtk with the standard BFD linker instead.

Please disable Gold on powerpc with:

ifneq (,$(filter $(DEB_HOST_ARCH),powerpc))

Gold is disabled on openSUSE as well where webkit2gtk builds fine and I have
verified that this is the case on Debian as well.
