fedpkg patch to build on ARM

Description of problem:
The current fritzing package fails to build on ARM (both armv5tel and armv7hl).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Attempt to build on ARM fails due to a type mismatch causing a template failure.

Additional info:
The attached patch (against fedpkg master branch) includes:
- a patch file that adds casts to two C++ source files
- changes to the specfile to incorporate the patch

Upstream has already added casts to one of the two C++ source files in svn, but not to the other one. I've submitted a patch upstream, see

(One of the reasons for building this for ARM is to include it in the Raspberry Pi Remix).

Comment 1 Chris Tyler 2012-06-23 17:25:35 UTC
Upstream says that current svn HEAD contains ARM fixes (unsure if they have made it into a release, though).
