Apparently the compiler is becoming stricter with enforcing C++ rules.
Here's a link to the patch that made the change in GCC:


It is no coincidence that the patches I sent to make groff compile look
vaguely similar to the testcase changes made in the GCC patch.

You were right that the patch breaks code, as it did when building QT
and parts of KDE. See the following thread for some more info:


As the patches needed to fix the problem are fairly trivial, and
according to the thread make the code more portable, this compiler
change _may_ be beneficial in the long run. At least groff is happy. :-)

the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
