The package cln was built on development on May 28. It still builds on FC4, but now fails on development. I'm getting errors that begin with something like this:

../include/cln/string.h:30: error: 'cl_string' is neither function nor member function; cannot be declared friend
../include/cln/string.h:30: error: expected ';' before 'operator'

It appears gcc-4.0.0-11 was released on June 6. Does anyone know whether this release is now enforcing some rules that were not enforced before? Can strict checking be turned off with compiler flags? I don't know C++ well enough to understand exactly what's going wrong here.

Yes, since gcc-c++-4.0.0-9 (FC5 devel) the checking of missing forward declarations is stricter. Earlier, apparently, a friend declaration implied a forward declaration.

Thanks. That fixed it.
