quote release column name to prevent error in newer mysql versions

Trying to install lxr its index building script failed at every(?) SQL command, because in newer mysql version 'release' is a reserverd word, but lxr uses it as a column name.

Just quoting the column name with ` worked for me, the index is now building, but upstream fixed it differently by renaming the offending column: <>

So a bump of lxr to 1.0.0 (released 2012-09-30 according to the lxr sourceforge page) would fix it, alternativly the attached patch works for me.

This seems unmaintained. Should we treeclean?
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-11-01 10:07:34 UTC
Also seems that updating to the latest versions is needed to fix lots of security bugs
