The current versions of google-mock and gtest in unstable are
incompatible with each other.  As google-mock relies on gtest,
aptitude will continue to FTBFS until that situation is resolved.  See

There are also issues with gcc4.8 and boost that are fixed in git, but
waiting for boost1.54 to become the default (or patched boost1.49 and
boost1.53). <http://bugs.debian.org/701243>.

Once the blocking issues are resolved it will be no problem to get
aptitude building again.
