[sword-devel] gcc 4.9.0

I encountered the bug while I was working from Fedora's rawhide in an
attempt to build sword 1.7.3 with bindings for the next release of Fedora.
I filed the issue with the Fedora bugtracker and they suggested I file it
upstream. I have not yet copied that bug report to upstream.

I can verify that the exact same code builds fine with swig 2.0.11 in
Fedora 20 and gcc 4.8.?. But with you getting it on Windows with swig 3.0
and MSVC rules out the possibility that it's a gcc 4.8-4.9 issue. I'll copy
my bugzilla from redhat to the upstream tracker next chance I get. Until
that time, you can try building with swig 2.0.12, which is the latest
pre-3.0 release that I'm aware of. It's also entirely possible that there
is a swig devel repository somewhere that might already have this resolved
that we could check. It would probably be easier for me to check that on
Linux than for you to compile swig on Windows.
