Package: python-ctypeslib
Version: 0.0.0+svn20100125-5
Severity: grave


gccxml since 0.9.0+git20140716-5 (dated Aug 7th, 2015) has been replaced
with a wrapper against CastXML. The wrapper is not fully compatible with
gccxml, which breaks most common invocations of h2xml (e.g. it's missing
the --preprocessor argument).

The gccxml package is apparently also shipping "gccxml.real" which is
the old gccxml that ctypeslib is relying on. Replacing the three
"gccxml" strings under cparser.py with "gccxml.real" seems to make this
package working again.
