I was afraid of that.

I wonder what the best course of action is.  I had earlier communicated
with the maintainer about this.  That was several weeks ago.  At that
time he was travelling and had poor Internet access, but managed to run
a build...of the version in stretch.  I did want to further bother
someone who was travelling and without good Internet access, but since
it has been a few weeks, I have not been able to sort it out, and there
is now confirmation from someone else that the package does not build,
it seems time to ping the maintainer again.

I have copied him on this message.

David,

Do you think you could try your build again, but for the
2.3.21+dfsg-4+deb8u3 package in jessie?  I would very migh like to
resolve the build problem, get the package uploaded, and the advisory
published.

Regards,

-Roberto
