package: etw
version: 3.6+svn140-3
severity: important

Hi, etw fails to build when the binutils-gold package is installed:

utility.c:618: error: undefined reference to 'atan2'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

This could be fixed by build-conflicting with binutils-gold or adding
"-lm" to LDFLAGS.

Best wishes,

 etw        - arcade-style soccer game
 etw-data   - graphics and audio data for etw
Closes: 693949
 etw (3.6+svn162-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream SVN snapshot.
     - Mostly code cleanup, small bug fixes and renaming of italian variables.
   * Switch to package format 3.0 (quilt).
   * debian/patches:
     - Drop changelog patch. A changelog was never installed.
     - Refresh all other patches, drop patch numbers and prepare Makefile.linux
       for hardening.
     - Add Fix-conflicting-types-for-drawtext-declaration.patch which fixes
       a FTBFS.
   * debian/control:
     - Drop superfluous quilt dependency.
     - Drop sharutils dependency. In version 3.6 we don't need it anymore to fix
       bug #335719.
     - New Standards-Version: 3.9.4.
   * Bump compat level to 9 and change requirement for debhelper to >= 9.
   * Update README.Debian and point to upstream's EatTheWhistle.txt
     which has been renamed to README. It contains additional and more useful
   * Update debian/copyright to copyright format 1.0.
   * Update etw's manpage.
   * Remove postinst and preinst script. Keep it simple and less error-prone.
   * Add etw.png icon and install etw.xpm only to /usr/share/pixmaps.
   * Update desktop and menu file and add German comments.
   * debian/rules:
     - Simplify debian/rules by using dh sequencer.
     - Update get-orig-source target.
     - Build with dh --parallel.
     - Fix FTBFS with binutils-gold and add -lm to LDFLAGS. (Closes: #693949)
   * Build with Wl, --as-needed to avoid unnecessary dependencies.
   * Partially build with hardening build flags. Unfortunately enabling all
     hardening features makes the game unusable.
   * Update watch file.
