Package: openais
Version: 0.83-1
Usertags: ftbfs-gcc-4.4

Your package fails to build with the upcoming GCC 4.4. Version 4.4
has not been released yet but I'm building with a snapshot in order
to find errors and give people an advance warning.

GCC 4.4 will introduce better checks in the preprocessor. The problem
is pretty obvious: you're using a #elif without any condition when
you really want a #else.

You can reproduce this problem with gcc-snapshot from unstable.
