In a clobber build of mozilla-central tip on Debian testing ("stretch") with GCC 5.3.1, I get the following build error: > /home/mbrubeck/src/mozilla-central/media/libvpx/vp8/common/treecoder.c: In function ‘tree2tok’: > /home/mbrubeck/src/mozilla-central/media/libvpx/vp8/common/treecoder.c:32:9: > error: invalid use of array with unspecified bounds > const vp8_tree_index j = t[i++]; > ^ I think this started happening when I upgraded to GCC 5.3.
It looks like this is a bug in libvpx; the Ubuntu and Debian packagers have applied a patch to fix it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libvpx/+bug/1528297 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=809129
Ralph - can you apply a patch like the above?

We could. However, upstream claims this was a gcc 5 which was fixed in subsequent releases. Upstream never applied the patch. Since things apparently work with a newer point release of gcc 5, I think we're ok without addressing thing. Please feel free to re-open if you still need the work-around. Sorry for not responding promptly.
