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. -- Dr. Andreas K.
