Comment (by suv-sf@…):

 Replying to [comment:6 braumann@…]:
 > Admittedly, I never have run into such ABI incompatibilities. Excuse my
 naive question, but are these by intention, or just by chance? There are
 quite a few non-system compilers available, so using some of them
 occasionally when building ports necessarily will lead to unstable

 These ABI incompatibilities are not specific to the software this report
 is about (and certainly not intentionally introduced by the Inkscape
 developers) - search the MacPorts' mailing lists, it's a recurring topic
 for C++ projects in MacPorts. Anyhow - I'll let this be handled by the
 maintainer of Inkscape in MacPorts (as mentioned in my initial comment,
 there is a patch available upstream for Leopard's compiler (gcc-4.2);
 whether it works or not or is sufficient for PPC arch is unknown - it has
 only been tested on i386-based 10.5.8 systems).
