Please note that although this package is stable and automake-1.13 is ~arch,
this is still a priority fix because ~arch users are immediately affected.

Is a patch going to be pushed to ~testing soon? I don't boost and commoncpp2 is my preferred way to teach gcc c++.... and yes, I'm a automake-1.13.1 hold out. I still think allowing the old macro style rolling around @world passes will just introduce errata, unnecessarily, maybe worse. Thanks
Comment 4 Tiziano Müller gentoo-dev 2013-06-17 13:28:15 UTC
Fixed together with version bump 1.8.1
