Which g++ version are you running on your system?

Does the warning go away if you take the boost.m4 file from and put it in the m4 folder in your DarkRadiant clone? You'll need to run ./ and then './configure --enable-debug --enable-darkmod-plugins' again for the macro change to take effect.

I am running gcc version 6.2.1 on Fedora 25. The message goes away after copying the boost.m4 file you linked to, to my m4 directory.

Ok, thanks for testing, I'll go ahead and update the boost m4 macros.

Updated the boost.m4 file in 462a95a19a8e06ad0bf1f4f95bf659e6bcd68dce. The next time the ./ script is run the warning should be gone.

Out of curiosity, are you able to run DarkRadiant in Fedora 25? I tried and it segfaulted on me.

wxWidgets seems to have a serious problem with Wayland, since the wxGLCanvas code is still referring to X11 calls (

i honestly haven't tried ;) but, yes, since fedora 25 seems to be the 1st major linux distro that has wayland as default, it seems like a good test case to try this on. but for this one, i don't particularly feel like being a crash test dummy on this particular case. ;) thanks again though, for solving the issue i reported !
