What I thought to be the problem yesterday turned out to only be an indirect
indication of the problem. I now blame a subtle change in the build order to
be the actual source of the issue.

I have applied a fix to maint, which seems to work well in all my tests
(both building with ninja or make). It would be helpful if others can build
our current maint branch report their results here as well.



Hi Geert,

I've just recreated my main maint repo (head is now d561cc6)  and build in
eclipse fails:

I see immediately afterwards, John pushed 29e7b07 Remove superfluous
