Tested on lsst-dev and a build of lsst_apps (using lsstsw) works with devtoolset-6 and miniconda 4.3.27.
I had to make two minor tweaks to the build:
- disable link-time-optimization (because Anaconda is compiled with GCC 7.2.0 which uses a newer LTO format than our current (new) GCC 6.3.1 compiler can handle)
- manually remove MKL from the conda packages (because something went wrong in the ./bin/deploy script.
Both are minor enough, and no other issues have been raised, that I think we can adopt this RFC. The issues will however, of course, have to be resolved as part of the implementation ticket.
