Please see: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=68848 in particular, this patch here: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=37005 See also the mild pushback from upstream about the env var implementation: Bernd Schmidt <bschm...@redhat.com> wrote: >>> Wouldn't it be simpler just to special-case -fdebug-prefix-map in >>> gen_producer_string? The environment variable thing strikes me as >>> unnecessary. https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-12/msg01280.html I didn't have Ximin's analysis to back up the argument for the env var case, and it seemed (and was) easier to just drop -fdebug-prefix-map From gen_producer_string. If you want to try to push this forward, i can follow up on that thread and ask for reconsideration of the associated patch. --dkg
