Probably.  And if the breakage was more minor, I would have left it 
there (e.g. what has been done with the make package).   But given I 
still do not 100% understand the bug and the there is no real schedule 
for an upstream fix, I thought it best to just make everybody's life 
easier and remove the package for the time being.
