 Replying to [comment:4 danmichaelo+macports@…]:
 > Yes, I were able to install and run the tests suite with -O2.

 Compiled for what architecture, running on what version of Mac OS X?

 > So my guess was that the need for the removal of -O2 had to do with a
 bug in an older version of cln or g++

 Shouldn't relate to an older version of cln, since the lines forcing the
 optimization level to -O were added to the portfile in r38679 at the same
 time as the version was updated to 1.2.2. Perhaps it was for an older
 version of g++, i.e. version 3.x which was on Panther. But MacPorts
 doesn't run on Panther anymore so if that's the case then we don't care
 about that anymore. Input from Greg would be appreciated here: where did
 you experience problems with the testsuite with -O2?

 > (the [http://www.ginac.de/CLN/cln_2.html#SEC7 CLN manual] hints on some
 issues with -O2 and old versions of g++..

 But only on Sparc.

 > Also, the CLN manual warns about the -O3 flag, which was why I added the
 removal of it just in case. Since I'm quite new to MacPorts I do not know
 whether the defaults are overriden by the user's environment, etc. If you
 think -O2 always will be the default, then just remove the "-O2/-O3" part
 from the Portfile. My intention was just to make sure -O2 was chosen.

 MacPorts clears the environment and sets up the defaults described in the
 guide. The default optimization level in MacPorts is -O2. See
 [http://guide.macports.org/#reference.phases.configure configure.optflags
 in the guide]. I don't think there's a way for the user to change this
 default either at MacPorts compile time nor from macports.conf.
