Severity: serious

The gpsdrive package is FTBFS with version 2.0.0 of the mapnik library,
which is the current version in Debian wheezy and sid, and Ubuntu
precise. The FTBFS occurs because the APIs of the new 2.0.0 version of
Mapnik are backward-incompatible to the old 0.7.1 version of Mapnik (see

Note, there is a Debian bug requesting to update the gpsdrive packages
to version 2.11 (Bug #591260), however this will not help resolve the
FTBFS, because 2.11 of gpsdrive is also FTBFS with mapnik version 2.0.0.

Since I'm not sure when or if the gpsdrive developers plan to migrate to
Mapnik 2.0.0, I've submitted a patch to the Ubuntu package that disables
the optional mapnik library in the gpsdrive packages. Attaching the
patch, for Debian upstream application. (I haven't made/tested the minor
changes needed for precise->unstable.)
