Summary0002586: netsurf fails to build for openSUSE (OBS) because of 64bit-portability-issue
I would like to provide a Netsurf up-to-date package to openSUSE Leap.
When building the RPM locally no problem happens but when building it with the Open Build Service which openSUSE uses, it fails at the very end of the process, when checks are done, with the following output :

[ 109s] netsurf-3.7-0.x86_64
[ 109s] ... running 01-check-debuginfo
[ 109s] ... testing for empty debuginfo packages
[ 109s] ... running 02-check-gcc-output
[ 109s] ... testing for serious compiler warnings
[ 109s] (using /usr/lib/build/checks-data/check_gcc_output)
[ 109s] (using /var/tmp/build-root/openSUSE_Leap_42.3-x86_64/.build.log)
[ 109s] E: netsurf 64bit-portability-issue build-x86_64-suse-linux-x86_64-suse-linux-release-binary/nsgenbind-parser.c:1520
[ 109s]
[ 109s] failed "build netsurf.spec" at Tue Jan 9 10:19:51 UTC 2018.
[ 109s]

Is there a specific GCC flags that I can use to prevent this or is it code related ?

Thank you in advance for your time, work and attention.

When #define in %code requires section of gsenbind-parser.y is set to :
there is no more build error.

Please see patch attached and consider closing this bug.

Thank you.
