We have been building Strongswan for a while and our last version we compiled successfully was 5.9.4.
We have tried to compile version 5.9.8 and we are getting these errors when compiling:

libtool: compile:  gcc -std=gnu11 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../.. -I../../src/libstrongswan -DIPSEC_DIR=\"/usr/local/libexec/ipsec\" -DIPSEC_LIB_DIR=\"/usr/local/lib/ipsec\" -DPLUGINDIR=\"/usr/local/lib/ipsec/plugins\" -DSTRONGSWAN_CONF=\"/usr/local/etc/strongswan.conf\" -Wno-format -Wno-format-security -Wno-implicit-fallthrough -Wno-missing-field-initializers -Wno-pointer-sign -Wno-sign-compare -Wno-type-limits -Wno-unused-parameter -g -O2 -include /code/strongswan-5.9.8/config.h -MT asn1/asn1.lo -MD -MP -MF asn1/.deps/asn1.Tpo -c asn1/asn1.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o asn1/.libs/asn1.o
asn1/asn1.c:32:1: error: initializer element is not constant
asn1/asn1.c:33:1: error: initializer element is not constant
asn1/asn1.c:34:1: error: initializer element is not constant

Our configure is pretty simple (with no errors):
./configure --enable-openssl --enable-eap-identity --enable-eap-mschapv2

our gcc --version is:
gcc (Linaro GCC 4.7-2013.02-01) 4.7.3 20130205

I assume it's the gcc version the is causing out trouble (which would be troublesome to update), but the configure didn't complain and was wondering what the minimum version is needed.
