Ok, too bad my compiler didn't complain about that.

Well, MonetDB at the moment is an unmaintainable beast within Gentoo
that I'm completely fed up with.  So, unless MonetDB will behave
normally, like an autotooled package should, I'll yank it from the tree
as it costs me way too much time to maintain it.  Another option for me
is to just yank XQuery support, but in that case I prefer removing
MonetDB as a whole.  Currently the MonetDB package in Gentoo is hard
masked -- and you know what that means.

You can see the initial patch as a signal that I want to help out doing
the dirty work.  If, however, you don't feel like investing in it,
neither will I.
