[Debian-med-packaging] Bug#688661: ncbi-blast+: FTBFS on arm* or mips*: no NCBI_INT8_TYPE

Source: ncbi-blast+
Version: 2.2.27-1
Severity: serious
Tags: upstream patch
Justification: fails to build from source

Thanks for updating BLAST+ to the latest release!  Alas, it turned out
to have a portability bug, for which I just committed a fix upstream;
could you please incorporate the patch?


ncbitype.h: switch NCBI_BIG_TYPE's baseline to Int8 from NCBI_INT8_TYPE
to fix build failures on Linux systems with ARM or MIPS processors,
which have inttypes.h and lack an extra-wide scalar type.
