I built a package of google-mock based on the current svn snapshot.
Using that, I can confirm that aptitude builds again (with patches
from head to build with gcc-4.8, which is the default now on most
arches), and in turn this resolves the issue that aptitude segfaults
on mips* (see #708812). Resolving that would allow us to re-enable
building experimental on mips*.

Because of that, I adjusted the severity of this bug report. Also, if
you want I could upload the fixed google-mock package now (or if you
don't disagree, I would upload it next weekend to allow us to get our
infrastructure back working again).
