Yes, the latest update of mikmod should be reverted, because it's too
late and it needs some further fixes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The main motivation for me to upgrade even to a beta version of mikmod
was that the upstream is dead for a couple of years and as I can see
from the upstream project page and CVS tree, we likely won't see any
other mikmod release.

The latest mikmod has a new interface by Andrew Zabolotny and other
improvements that makes it worth to update to the latest mikmod. I'll
try to sync with the releng and package maintainers involved after F7 is
released to not to break things now.
