Yeah.  Which makes me remember what it was.  There was a problem with a
program wanting to use a C++ libraries in a C program or such.  I didn't
knew if that was a gcc issue (we used 3.x earlier than other Debian ports),
or a genuine X bug, but I found it also being reported for another
architecture on the X mailing list, so I just stopped bothering about it and
disabled that extension.

Just build it.  If the bug is still there, you will find out :)
