Enabling USE_NEW_PCBNEW_SAVE will likely cause an addition compilation failure on your system.

wxGTK 2.8.11 was out before gcc 4.6 is my guess.  Therefore wx people had no way to adjust to changes in gcc 4.6 hashtable support without a time machine.

Probably a newer wxGTK will fix the problem.

The reason I chose to use wx hashtable support was to make them (wx people) do the work of following something that only recently has come out of the tunnel.  I did not want to chase a moving target.

In two years I would go a different way.  But, "letting wx do the work" means letting them do the work by using a sufficiently new version relative to your compiler.

Is this possible for you?  Or can you simply apply this little patch you found for the next little bit.

Your patch is not appropriate beyond your system.
