Sounds like it.

Just strip it down as far as you can by experiment. If all else fails, I
imagine the maintainers would be happy enough if you ran a sample source
file through the preprocessor and gave them the output (if you're at
liberty to do so).

You could try the version from unstable, but that depends on newer
libc6, which is a whole new problem ...
You might be best off asking the maintainer if he knows of a workaround
that can be applied in your code.
