Hi Andrey,

If you can come up a one-liner patch to make it compatible with old
glib, we can think of applying it; I have nothing against supporting
older glib per se, unless it comes with too much of a maintenance
cost... but I'm not really sure if it's worth it.

Back when I was taking care of backporting mc to older RHELs, I simply
used to build newer glib statically from within the package and link mc
to it... that's the route I'd suggest you to go if you care about
backporting mc to Squeeze.

Hi Egmont,

Could you please be so kind as to tell me what's the minimal version
required now? I can look into bumping the version in the configure
check... as soon as I manage to get to it :-/


Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
