In particular, NSS relies heavily on env variables and gmake variables. GAR sets the 'PLATFORM' variable, which confuses it. I believe the root cause of this is that NSS build is broken, but I find it hard to fix. Can GAR use a private prefix instead? For instance, GAR could use a variable named GAR_PLATFORM.

    I didn't notice I wasn't logged in. I'm the reported of this artifact.

     
  • It may be more useful to clean out the environment with bin/env and explicitily control exported variables. I'll investigate it, but it may take some time. Until then you should filter BUILD_EXPORTS
