I did a git bisect, here is the result:

18f09524f72ccc56273859fceb2c7cf1c7b15c78 is the first bad commit

    configure: use -x instead of -wN ..@ to strip assembly files

    Reduces the amount of debugging information of external asm from
    uselessly verbose to informative enough.

Is this still relevant?

comment:3 by svnpenn, 6 years ago

I just tried this again with the commit in question (and with x264 2451a72) and I cannot reproduce the original error

perhaps it was a problem with one of my build tools at the time

i would consider the issue resolved - unless someone can reproduce the error - thanks
