Yesterday I had bug report on a segfaulting binary for x86_64 that

I have reported the bug upstream:

Now this means I have no means to include a working binary of dvisvgm
for x86_64 in texlive-bin until that bug is resolved, since I cannot
rely on gcc 4.4.x and no patch is available...
What is the procedure you guys follow is such situations?
Run in circles, scream and shout at people. Then after some time start
crying. I have really no idea.
A more practical approach would be to compile the package with gcc 4.4
(there are mirrors containing old packages) and accept that this is an
ugly but temporary workaround. You should also open a bug report on our
bug tracker and link to the upstream one.
but I see that Allan is already listed on the cc list upstream.
It is an interesting bug... It is fixed in gcc mainline. In fact, it is fixed within
a week of branching gcc-4.5, so it is weird that it has not been backported.
If you could release a new "backported" version of gcc 4.5 soon so that I can recompile
texlive-bin, you would be my hero, and I promise never to say that you broke anything ever
If for some reason this is not possible, then I'll try to grab gcc 4.4.4 from somewhere.
