Debian is the primary development platform of Gyoto, so Gyoto is known
to work in this context. There is also no reverse dependency as of now,
and I don't expect any to emerge any time soon (at least not before the
freeze!). I have checked the ABI compatibility page at
and I don't see anything relevant to Gyoto either.

Gyoto actually uses Boost (just odeint and multiprecision). Do you know
whether there are incompatibilities in these?

Anyway, I think I'll just go ahead and don't build-depend on a specific
compiler, because Gyoto can be built already with Wheezy's default
compiler in C++11 mode. Thanks all for your tips.

Kind regards, Thibaut.
