The gcc breakage is harmless (it fails to build some documentation files, but 
ignores that and continues the build); we have a patch, which will be bumped 
to stable after some "just to be safe" testing. (The unkeyworded versions of 
5.4 and 4.9.4.) gcc-6 and later is already fixed upstream.

Autoconf is not so harmless, but the current newest ~arch version contains the 
fix already.
