[Dnsmasq-discuss] Fun with glibc headers

Our friend Matt Domsch's periodic rebuilds of Fedora packages caught what
was originally identified as a GCC 4.3 build failure. Alas, I'd already
had a successful build of 2.41rc1 under GCC 4.3, so it was apparently a
false positive. However, it appears that an odd little change in
glibc-headers may have broken things.
As of glibc-headers-2.7.90-6 (in Fedora-land), the "struct in6_pktinfo"
definition seems to be hidden inside "#ifdef __USE_GNU". So my question
for Simon is: where would be the ideal place to #define that?
Here are links to the information I'm basing that conclusion on.
My successful build of 2.41rc1, about two weeks ago:
Matt's original build failure:
My build failure when I (successfully) tried to reproduce it on Fedora
A diff between the working and non-working glibc-headers packages:
I'm not a programmer (just a sysadmin/package monkey), so I welcome
anyone to look at the data and chime in with their
quite-possibly-more-informed thoughts. :-)
