Packages with optflags and/or debuginfo issues



Quite a few packages produce useless -debuginfos nowadays.  In addition to 
empty -debuginfos, a debuginfo package that contains some *.debug files but 
no sources is also quite likely not honoring $RPM_OPT_FLAGS, and if so, also 
very likely to have been built without compiler generated security features.  
Looks like reviewers should pay more attention to these issues (although they 
can obviously be introduced after reviews too).

More info, including some suggestions how to fix common cases: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Debuginfo

Lists of susceptible packages in Core and Extras devel repos follows, and the 
crude script to produce this output is attached.  The output is not 100% 
bleeding edge; it's run against current public repos.  Some packages have 
already had bugs reported against them, and some already fixed in CVS.  The 
script currently excludes *.debug installed in %{_libdir}/gcj - I suppose 
rpmbuild does not know how to include sources for gcj's Java *.so.
