I see. I understand that this may be my particular need, but for me it
is extremely convenient to be able to install the igraph library as a
debian package (does not really matter if from source). Actually, I
will check which gcc I have on that machine (on the one I am using
right now there are gcc-4.1 to gcc-4.3 available). Maybe there is a
way to specify which compiler should be used when compiling from
source igraph? Also, I will soon be given another amd64 box and the
problem is likely to appear there as well.
I am not in terrible hurry, but I do use a lot igraph and it would be
excellent to devise a workaround for this by the end of next week.
