Great point; thanks for the heads-up. I'll see if the source can
be grabbed, and if so, move to that. If it's unavailable, or I
can't get it packaged up, I'll execute the rename (this was my
first update of a package I took over).

Thanks for the information. I'm not sure how much the obsolete
version of the package was being used; if it was in wide use,
I'm sure I'll get some bugreports, and I'll back up to a release
from earlier this year. Otherwise, I'm inclined to wait for the
gcc update.

Thanks for the pointer, Daniel! Hopefully I'll be able to
rebuild the sources against the Arch community versions of
libgmm/libigc, and that'll fix things up.

I personally don't need any particular version; I'm just trying
to pitch in on Arch, and as an HPC guy, the unloved Intel OpenCL
packages seemed a good place to start =].
