Actually... This was already fixed:
Something seems to be blocking the builds, though. I notified the
submitter of the patch (Bastian).

Actually, I always wondered what that package was for and why we're
maintaining it in the 3-D Printing team. I would think it's more suited
for the Electronics team.
That being said, I don't care either way. I'm not using it, but if it
doesn't cause too much work, I don't think it should just be dropped
either. The situation with binutils/gcc-avr is a very unfortunate one,
and there have been discussion about switching from the Atmel/Microchip
fork back to upstream gcc to avoid bugs like this.
I think it's worthwhile to have a high-quality C/C++ compiler that
supports modern standards for 8-bit microcontrollers.
