[Aptitude-devel] Bug#667793: aptitude: FTBFS

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.6-1
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)


I tried to build aptitude with the experimental apt libraries installed.

Building aptitude is not possible with the steted build-dependencies, however.

I don't think it even gets to use the new apt headers.

First it utterly fails to detect gmock.

There is gmock-config which aptitude does not use.

-LIBS="$LIBS -lgmock"
+LIBS="$LIBS $(gmock-config --libs)"
 #include <gmock/gmock.h>

When configure is patched to find gmock using the gmock-config the build still fails.

The build-depends state libsigc++-2.0-dev but version from squeeze does not suffice, version 2.2.10-0.1 works.

Please update the package so that it is buildable.
