Log of a failed build

I'm running Mandriva 2010.2 x86_64 and I'm trying to build a package of Mesa 7.11.1 for my distro (gcc 4.4.3).
The build process always pass the -Werror=format-security to the compiler as per this Wiki page: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Problems_and_issues_with_packaging;
but, starting with the recent release 7.11.1 this causes the build to fail at
mail/dlist.c with the error "format not a string literal and no format arguments".

With the older Mesa 7.11 tarball or by forcing the build system to not pass the -Werror=format-security switch to gcc, the build succeeds.

We should cherry pick 5485192, I guess.
Comment 2 Brian Paul 2011-11-21 10:42:13 UTC
Agreed.  Can you take care of that?
Comment 3 Henri Verbeet 2011-11-21 11:08:10 UTC
Sure, pushed.
Comment 4 Giovanni Mariani 2011-11-23 01:54:59 UTC
That solves build the problem for me.
Making resolved fixed.
