Hi Xavier,

I have not heard from you for a while.
How have you been?
   Xavier, for this issue, can you open a bug report with https://bugs.freedesktop.org?
I do not really use the latest compiler for testing, so I was not aware of this issue.
You will need to attach a text file with relevant error messages indicating which extern variables are causing the issue.
