Hi.  Thanks for the report.  It is a known issue that you need to build
applications that use libidn with the same compiler that compiled libidn
itself.  Thus, could you compile libidn using the C++ compiler instead?
E.g., ./configure CC=cxx or something.  This might not work for other
reasons, but at least you could try it.

Thanks for the link -- maybe we can do something here to improve the

I wonder when this problem was introduced, I recall building libidn on
IRIX in older times.  Not much has changed since then, so maybe there is
some other workaround that I used but have forgotten.
