Package: freefem++
Version: 3.18.1-1
Severity: serious
Justification: FTBFS


freefem++ currently FTBFS in sid:

../Graphics/getprog-unix.hpp: In function 'int getprog_(char*, int, char**)':
../Graphics/getprog-unix.hpp:171:15: error: 'chdir' was not declared in this scope

This is most probably due to the switch to gcc-4.7.

There are two types of Linux developers - those who can spell, and
those who can't. There is a constant pitched battle between the two.
