i am the upstream programmer of libburn.
If i can do anything to help fixing the problem, please tell me.


About the doxygen complaints (of which i am unsure whether they are
the reason for the stalled build process):

libburn release does not build doxygen stuff any more since several
years. The doxygen.conf.in file is part of the makefile, target "doc"
is still defined in the makefile, but it is not required by target "all".
So Debian seems to call "make doc" explicitly, or do something else
that triggers doxygen.

doxygen is a recurring source of problems. I would advise to
remove it from the Debian build process for libburn.
I'd remove it from the release if that was not a potential
way to break the distro builds.

I corrected most of the complained items in libburn.h now
(release 1.3.2 will come soon).

But this one riddles me:
> /«PKGBUILDDIR»/libburn/libburn.h:3515: Warning: explicit link request to 'if' could not be resolved
There is a word "If" in the comment text. But there are lots
of similar occasion where doxygen raises no protest.

Have anice day :)
