Description Jonathan Scruggs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-10-29 11:00:48 UTC
Created attachment 451822 [details]

Upstream decided to hard code -std=gnu++98 compile flag instead of fixing the underlying issues. I made a patch that removes that hard coding and fixes the issues that caused the compile failures. I'll submit the the patch upstream later. It's now set to use compiler default -- probably could make it use -std=c++14 for consistency. That line of the patch can be changed if you want.

I removed the sed lines to put them in the build fixes patch.

Updated to EAPI 6.

I can create a Pull Request if you want.
