  Well, the packaging looks ok, and the binaries appear to work after a bit of
crude smoke-testing, but I can't successfully rebuild from source.  I've tried
on two different systems now (both fairly up-to-date), and they've both hung
up at this stage:

Making all in vmalloc
make[3]: Entering directory
mkdir -p ../../FEATURE
/tmp/volker/graphviz/rebuild/graphviz-2.18-1/src/graphviz-2.18/iffe - set cc
gcc   : run
tures/vmalloc > ../../FEATURE/vmalloc

  In each case there was a stuck exe running, "FALBA2320.exe" for one and
FUBIK-something-or-other on the other.  The stuck exe was using zero cpu and
just sitting there indefinitely.  Running it manually at the command-line
didn't stall.  The sh.exe that invoked the iffe script is still alive but also
stalled.  After killing the exe, the shell wakes up and carries on with the

  The FALBA2320.c test was checking for the presence of strdup and sure enough
it doesn't seem to appear in any of the feature test macros in
