The google-mock (actually in googletest) has been filed and is also
blocking.  A patch cherry-picked from upstream is provided. [1]

The aptitude master branch is now updated such that it builds
successfully with gcc-4.8 provided that gtest and boost are both
patched.  An upload will be made once all blocking bugs are closed.
