What I meant by that badly-worded statement was: if it had turned out to
be an incompatibility between the code and -current's newer compiler,
so -fpermissive was required by the new gcc/g++, then 15's compiler
would have the same issue (it will be the same or newer than the gcc
in -current).

gcc/g++ gets more & more strict with each release. Code that used to
compile either needs extra compiler flags or patches. That's what I
meant by having to deal with it eventually.

In this case that wasn't the real issue (the guy wasn't even running
-current), so that advice was useless to you, but the point still stands
in general.
