Package: imagemagick
Version: 8:
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)

Dear Maintainer,

I wanted to rebuild ImageMagick to enable HDRI so I could try out the examples


I got imagemagick using apt-get source.
I did a
  sudo apt-get build-dep imagemagick
and also installed openexr-dev

I cd'd to imagemagick-
and ran
  ./configure  --prefix=$(readlink -f ..) '--sysconfdir=/etc' '--
mandir=${prefix}/share/man' --enable-hdri '--infodir=${prefix}/share/info'
'--with-modules' '--with-gs-font-dir=/usr/share/fonts/type1/gsfonts' '--with-
magick-plus-plus' '--with-djvu' '--enable-shared' '--without-dps' '--without-
fpx' '--with-perl-options=INSTALLDIRS=vendor' '--x-includes=/usr/include/X11' '
--x-libraries=/usr/lib/X11' 'CFLAGS=-g -O2' 'LDFLAGS=' 'CPPFLAGS=' 'CXXFLAGS=-g

I got added "--enable-hdri" and the prefix and LDFLAGS so it would run side-by-
side with the official Debian version.

It failed as follows:
magick/resize.c: In function 'VerticalFilter':
magick/resize.c:2494:11: error: pointer value used where a floating point value
was expected

Debian prefers I contact them about what looks like an upstream issue, so here
it is.
