Bug#931498: gmpc-plugins: Some plugins are disabled

Martin Tharby Jones
Package: gmpc-plugins
Version: 11.8.16-3
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I want to use the gmpc-albumview plugin but it is not built as part of the
stable release. I checked at https://gmpclient.org/plugins and it is still

I downloaded the source from the link
on https://gmpc.fandom.com/wiki/GMPC_PLUGIN_ALBUMVIEW.

This fails to build due to following error:

libtool: compile:  gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -pthread -I/usr/include/gmpc
-I/usr/include/gtk-2.0 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/include

plugin.c: In function ‘load_list_itterate’:

This unhelpful message is caused by the redeclaration of strndup(), it is also
declared in string.h.

The declaration in libmpd-internal.h is protected by #ifndef but HAVE_STRNDUP
is not defined in config.h

char *          strndup                                 (const char *s, size_t

Adding #define HAVE_STRNDUP to config.h gives me a useable build but I don't
know enough about autotools so I had to make the addition manually. The problem
seems to be associated with older versions of the C library not providing

Several other plugins were disabled as a workaround to fix Debian Bug report
#807735 so a proper fix for this should work for them also. A workaround like
this should have reduced the severity of this bug not closed it!

Dear Maintainer,

I've just upgrade to buster and the bug is still the same.
