This passes fine. No other compilation units have this problem.

This is happening (and only happening here) because this version/patch
of gcc emits deprecated constructors as warnings in a different way
from deprecated functions or methods. This is the only deprecated
constructor right now.
Quite why this is suddenly biting (given I was able to build this not
that long ago, and nothing obvious has changed around this code or the
deprecation system) I don't know. Possibly a knock-on effect of more
To fix this, we could conditionally redefine #define
XAPIAN_DEPRECATED(D) (D) within api/query.h, although that's not very
pleasant. Given it only happens on this platform (that we know of)
I don't feel that a solution involving a different macro for
deprecated constructors is wise.
