Bug#648994: qt4-x11: g++-4.4 optimizer broken on Alpha
Due to a bug in the g++-4.4 optimizer, the normal "-O2" build of "qt4-x11"
binary packages results in segfaults on the alpha architecture when apps
are run that use the "qt4" libraries. This includes "kdm" and the KDE4
"plasma-desktop" at a minimum (bad behavior verified and easy to reproduce).
A verified workaround is to build with "-O0". Note that
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt is ignored by the QT build system: I ended up
editing the appropriate files under "mkspecs" directly to test the
Unknown whether use of gcc/g++-4.6 fixes the issue.
