Log of failing build.

While emerging app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999 from the my wtk overlay I ran into:

  cd /var/tmp/portage/app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999/work/obexpushd-9999_build/src && /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc  -D_GNU_SOURCE -DUSE_LIBGCRYPT -DHAVE_SDPLIB -DUSB_GADGET_SUPPORT -DENABLE_TCPWRAP -DUSE_XATTR -DOPENOBEX_TCPOBEX=1 -DDEFINITIONS  -DNDEBUG -O2 -march=native -pipe  -std=c99 -I/var/tmp/portage/app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999/work/obexpushd-9999/src -I/var/tmp/portage/app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999/work/obexpushd-9999_build/src    -o CMakeFiles/obexpushd.dir/obexpushd.c.o -c /var/tmp/portage/app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999/work/obexpushd-9999/src/obexpushd.c
  In file included from /var/tmp/portage/app-mobilephone/obexpushd-9999/work/obexpushd-9999/src/obexpushd.c:18:0:
  /usr/include/bluetooth/bluetooth.h: In function ‘bt_get_le64’:

  /usr/include/bluetooth/bluetooth.h:159:9: error: ‘struct <anonymous>’ has no member named ‘__v’

This seems to be the same as Debian's 661879 [1], which they fixed by patching bluez [2].

I can confirm that the patch does fix the issue for me.

The patch made it into the upstream mailing list back in March, but doesn't seem to be included in their repository yet.  I've bumped them, and will report back on what I hear.

It could be a gcc bug per:
Comment 5 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-10-28 18:52:00 UTC
reassigning to pacho (thanks!) since I stepped down as maintainer for bluez

But no idea about what gcc version includes a fix for that

Thanks Pacho for pushing this forward!  Upstream threads (so others don't need to dig through Gmane):  (2012-01-16)  (2012-03-05)  (2012-07-29)
Comment 8 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-02-12 19:32:06 UTC
Still valid with gcc-4.6.3?

Yeah, I got the same error using gcc-4.6.3 and bluez-4.101-r5.
Comment 10 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-10-03 06:12:33 UTC
And with gcc-4.7.3-r1?

I'll let you know once something in the 4.7 series stabilizes ;).
Comment 12 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-10-12 06:07:44 UTC
It's in progress :)
