Yes, so, you have raised this in a timely fashion.  While I was backporting a 
patch against orcus for the 6-0 branch last night, I did notice the possibility 
of this very issue, and was thinking of how to address it for that branch.  
Since you've already discovered this and emailed it to the list, let me provide 
my thoughts on this.

First of all, your patch should work fine.  However, with this change, we need 
to ensure that liborcus version 0.13.3 or later be used.  If you used an 
earlier version this change does break things.

What I was thinking of proposing is backporting the following commits:


raise the orcus baseline to 0.13.3, and commit all of these as a single 
backport commit to ensure that these all happen atomically.  This way if 
someone wants to build from the 6-0 branch using the system liborcus then the 
configure script should be able to catch it and fail.

How does this sound?
