Have begun work on this, dependency openbabel not met, working on that and issues with CMAKE. Have raised issue on their bug tracker, awaiting response.

Hi Justin, I think those issues are the same I found. I fixed the CMake problem using regex (ugly regex that should be refined, but it compiled). Just in case it helps, you can have a look at the patch I submited for openbabel, T3116.
Hope it helps.

Edit: what I did there was patching MacroEnsureVersion.cmake to change the regex used in that file, so that it can really find and check properly the gcc version...

@euoar they managed to fix it upstream so I'll wait for a new release from them (as commented) and then get it all packaged together.

Awaiting a package upgrade of openbabel beyond 2.4.1 to include patch for issue 1624.

Closing as WONTFIX, they've had a sufficient amount of time to put out a new release.
