This is because our tarball binaries are built with cmake, and our RPM packages are built via rpmbuild calling out to cmake. The issue is rpmbuild sneaks in a bunch of additional and undesired compiler flags. We are working to fix this issue for the upcoming HTCondor v8.4.2 release. Follow progress and see details at:

Yes, our 8.4 attempt was from the RPM packages obtained by the âstableâ repo.
Here, our primary current HTCondor users are astronomers (well, one cosmologist dominates). The cosmology programs she runs go for 3-4 months at a time. We are a Physics and Astronomy department and have had folks from all four of our primary research areas (Astrophysics, Atomic-Molecular-Optical, Condensed-Matter and High-Energy) submitting jobs over the years. There is a separate HTCondor pool for the High Energy folks (which I donât manage, so I canât speak to what is happening there) so we donât see that on our main dept. pool anymore.
