OpenBSD -current just updated to clang 6.0.0 a few days ago, is that fix
already part of clang 6.0.0?
I'll have to wait a few days before I upgrade my desktop to test, because there
was quite some fallout
in the ports tree because of that clang update, and I have to wait until the
most of it is fixed and
packages are available. Then I can retry gnustep-base from GIT.
If the fix is not yet in 6.0.0, then send the patch along, and I can give it a
try, but still, I'll need a
few days before upgrading.
