Package: dia
Version: 0.97.2-15
Usertags: goto-cc

During a rebuild of all packages in a clean sid chroot (and cowbuilder+pbuilder)
the build failed with the following error. Please note that we use our research
compiler tool-chain (using tools from the cbmc package), which permits extended
reporting on type inconsistencies at link time.

Observe that both the return type and the type of the first parameter lack a
const in the actual definition. This may be harmless as far as the return type
is concerned, but may point at potential problems for the parameter as the
calling function will not expect modifications to the underlying plist.
