Re: Re: Errors building mozilla thunderbird 38.7.0 with gcc 6

FWIW, I think it is problematic to #include_next<stdlib.h> in <cstdlib>.
It isn't <cstdlib> that should #include<stdlib.h> (it should be using a plain #include<stdlib.h>). It is <stdlib.h> that should #include_next<stdlib.h> because they have the same name.

The implementation at the moment is proved to cause a relocation problem. There has been nobody willing to solve it yet. 
It is still unconfirmed whether it is a c pre-processor bug or a driver bug, but, AFAIC, if it turns out to be neither, failure to find "stdlib.h" from the C library of the #include_next directive in <cstdlib> will definitely be a libstdc++ bug.

And the other problem is probably due to not finding the right
headers, so is the same problem.

If not, then the call to abs(sl) might need to be adjusted to pass an
integer, not a double.

Both of these issues are documented at
