Package: libsynaptics
Version: 0.14.6c-2
Usertags: ftbfs-gcc-4.4
Tags: patch

Your package fails to build with the upcoming GCC 4.4.  Version 4.4
has not been released yet but I'm building with a snapshot in order
to find errors and give people an advance warning.

GCC 4.4 cleaned up some more C++ headers.  You always have to #include
headers directly and cannot rely for things to be included indirectly.

You can reproduce this problem with gcc-snapshot from unstable.

You filled the bug in Debian BTS
against the package libsynaptics. I'm closing it at *unstable*, but it will
remain open for older distributions.

For more information about this package's removal, read That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
