I use igloo's package status page for this.

When it failed before, I tried to reproduce the failure.  Then I took
the file where it failed, ran gcc -E with the same arguments as the
build, and generated a preprocessor-free .c file.  Compiling that file
with gcc -c generated the same error.  Compiling this same file with
gcc -c now no longer generates that error.  This suggests that it may
run to completion now, but it is, of course, not a "confirmation".
Anyway, I would request that it be requeued on this basis.

Unfortunately, I never reported a bug with this file because I did
this test days before I moved and couldn't retrieve the file from
crest for an extended period of time.  Sorry about that.

The build was probably 5% done, so I interrupted it.  I'll delete the
files on crest once I see that the wanna-build state has been
updated.  Thanks!
