The C++ of the configure test is very hairy, jigdo doesn't actually
use template specialization, so this warning might be bogus. I should
probably change the configure test.

It seems you have a linker problem both with the native compiler and

I'm very interested in getting it to compile cleanly on your machine.
I guess it's not possible for me to get an account on your uni's
