Yes, sorry everybody -- due to me being stupid and looking in the wrong
VM, I didn't see all the breakage that 2.3.0 had caused until yesterday.

So I pushed a quick revert before Willy did yesterday's public update :)

Thanks for bringing a solution instead of a problem :)

The first fail on my list (libLAS) explicity sets gnu89. libLAS seems to
be dying or dead upstream, so I gave up. We might need to make some
difficult decisions, depending on which packages are unfixable.

I'll try to do some more this week (more carefully!)

Thanks again
