Ok, too bad it wasn't our own code base but good that the "mystery" is verified

I finally succeed to build topic/af_unix (after finding out what version of zlib was needed), but not with -D__WITH_AF_UNIX to CXXFLAGS though and thus I haven’t tested it yet

Is it sufficient to add the define to the "main" Makefile or do you have to add it to all the Makefile:s ? I guess I can find out though

Is topic/af_unix fairly up to date with master branch ?

Either way, I'll be glad to help out testing topic/af_unix

Keep up the good work

Best regards,
