Package: libwxbase2.8-0
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

    libcrypto++-dev 5.6.1-9 has entered testing repository, which causes a
conflict to the current version of wx2.8 on amule
(see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=799347).
since wx2.8 is built against the ABI (mainly std::string) of gcc-4, and cannot
used along with libcrypto++9v5, on which the new libcrypto++-dev (5.6.1-9)
built against gcc-5's C++ ABI. If I build the package from source with
installed with apt-get build-dep, the binary will refuse to run for ABI
So now I have not to upgrade libcrypto++-dev to 5.6.1-9.

    libcrypto++9v5 cannot coexist with libcrypto++9, on which the current amule
depends. So if the upgrading of libcrypto++-dev is finally unstoppable, we had
better rebuild wx2.8 with gcc-5.

    The bug report seems like a wish list. I classify it as important because
the main
usage of wx2.8 on debian is the dependency of amule :-)
