I don’t think we will be able to handle the changes in:


These changes constitute an interface change and would make applications running with previous builds/release candidates of 3.4.0 binary incompatible with the final release.

I think we could accommodate these changes. They are build related and should not affect functionality.

Attached the following patches to allow clean build linux on core FDO, all 
still valid on 3.4.0, explained:

- Required if you compile with -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--as-needed in ldflags, 
otherwise have link failure

- Required to enable usage with xalan-c versions equal or higher than 1.10

- Required to avoid compilation break

- Required if you compile with -Wformat flags that avoid use printf/sprintf 
with proper syntax and enable possible buffer underruns

- Requires to enable usage with xercer >= 2.8

- Used to make message parameters constified, reducing verbosity of compilation 
and saving unnecessary code allocation.

Hope i'm not too late to this be included in release
