Description Daniel J. 2009-02-09 22:16:02 UTC
In the past, GCC has been lenient with #elif's with no conditional clause, but in GCC 4.4 it will cough and die.  The file layoutex/ParagraphLayout.cpp contains such #elif's.

This was fixed in upstream SVN trunk with changeset 24411.  AFAICT, it hasn't made its way into any official releases yet.

Yummy, bugs fixed before they exist!

added to gcc-porting overlay

Feel free to commit it to the main tree. I have absolutely zero knowledge about this package and I have no idea why it is even in the PHP herd (it has been there for a long time and only PHP6 is going to use it, which is still away a fair amount of time).

patch for 4.0.1 ebuild to eliminate empty elif's

icu-4.0.1 has a similar issue.  The attached patch fixes the new ebuild.
Comment 7 Daniel J. 2009-04-06 03:23:30 UTC
This package is used by webkit-gtk (rather than PHP, other than PHP6).  It seems like it would make sense to reassign this from the PHP herd to the Gnome or GTK people.
