Your package fails to build with GCC 4.3. Version 4.3 has not been
released yet but I'm building with a snapshot in order to find errors
and give people an advance warning.
Error 1) GCC 4.3 has converted a number of warnings into errors.
With GCC 4.3, you're no longer to just redefine a previous #define.
You need to either avoid redefinitions directly or to use #ifndef to
make sure that something has not been defined already. See
Error 2) GCC 4.3 has converted a number of warnings into errors.
With GCC 4.3, you're no longer allowed to put spurious text after
preprocessor directives, such as #else and #endif. See
You can reproduce this problem with gcc-snapshot from unstable. Note
that Red Hat, Novell and Ubuntu have done some work getting packages
to build with GCC 4.3 so there might be patches floating around
somewhere. I suggest you talk to your upstream.
