qmake-qt4 generated Makefile calls GNU strip on program icon

Hi!
One of the packages I maintain is a Qt4 application: GoldenDict. When calling qmake-qt4 to generate the Makefile, the following two targets are created:

install_icons: first FORCE
        @$(CHK_DIR_EXISTS) $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/pixmaps/ || $(MKDIR) $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/pixm\
aps/ 
        -$(INSTALL_PROGRAM) /home/tamisier/arch-packages/goldendict-git/src/goldendict/redist/icons/gold\
endict.png $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/pixmaps/
        -strip $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/pixmaps/goldendict.png

install_desktops: first FORCE
        @$(CHK_DIR_EXISTS) $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/applications/ || $(MKDIR) $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share\
/applications/ 
        -$(INSTALL_PROGRAM) /home/tamisier/arch-packages/goldendict-git/src/goldendict/redist/goldendict\
.desktop $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/applications/
        -strip $(INSTALL_ROOT)/usr/share/applications/goldendict.desktop

Both targets are calling strip, which results in the following errors when running make install:

install -m 755 -p /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/src/goldendict/redist/icons/goldendict.p\
ng /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/pixmaps/
strip /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/pixmaps/goldendict.png
strip:/home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/pixmaps/goldendict.png:\
 Unable to recognise the format of the input file
make: [install_icons] Error 1 (ignored)
install -m 755 -p /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/src/goldendict/redist/goldendict.desktop\
 /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/applications/
strip /home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/applications/goldendict\
.desktop
strip:/home/virtualtam/arch-packages/goldendict-git/pkg/goldendict-git/usr/share/applications/goldendict\
.desktop: Unable to recognise the format of the input file
make: [install_desktops] Error 1 (ignored)

The error does not prevent the package from being built, but it would be nice to not have it at all... roll
Is there a way to tell qmake-qt4 not to strip icons and .desktop files?

Re: qmake-qt4 generated Makefile calls GNU strip on program icon

Given that makepkg will strip binaries anyways, you could just remove all calls to strip (via sed).

Or, perhaps (untested) just define and export strip as a function that does nothing.

Re: qmake-qt4 generated Makefile calls GNU strip on program icon

Yes, I thought of patching the Makefile too, but I'm wondering if it is possible to do it the clean way by passing an option to qmake... In the generated makefile, there is a $STRIP variable that defines the utility for stripping, but in the Makefile, though it is passed as an option for compilation targets, it is not used for "resources" such as icons, where the call to "strip" is hardcoded.

Re: qmake-qt4 generated Makefile calls GNU strip on program icon

while this may not solve your problem.  VirtualTam,

makepkg can be configured to NOT strip binaries by using

options = (!strip) in the PKGBUILD.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Actually, using

options=(!strip)

in the PKGBUILD prevents makepkg from stripping binaries when calling the package() method, which is not the issue here...

Re: qmake-qt4 generated Makefile calls GNU strip on program icon

Looks like problem still persists. I found a better workaround than sed'ing Makepkg - just pass "QMAKE_STRIP=echo" to qtmake like

qmake-qt4 -spec linux-g++-32 "QMAKE_STRIP=echo" 

and strip will not happen anymore.
