|After going a "little" to aggressive on the optimization options I realized that we do not have a list of false positives for building with FEATURES=test. The only info I could find was a general notion that regular users should not bother with this, often based on the prevalence of false positives.
Since I believe we would be better off if more people had this enabled, I enabled it on my rescue-partition (since it got a basic config with only glibc, util-linux, net-tools and gentoo-sources at ~amd64) and emerged @world with --emptytree.
The result was the following files:
#packages that fail baseline test:
sys-libs/db notest.conf #warning says it will use 6+h, uses 12+h on i7-2.7Ghz 32Gb with /var/tmp/portage in tmpfs. Also fails.
dev-libs/zziplib notest.conf #same version passes test on system with more ebuilds at ~amd64, not investigated further yet
|FEATURES="test test-fail-continue -usersandbox" |
|#useflags needed for compiling world with FEATURES=test
media-gfx/imagemagick corefonts truetype
Edit: Fixed info on zziplib
