I think that shouldn't be ignored so easily, but never mind.

> The INSTALL.txt states the following:
> Since PHP below version 5.3.7 has a bug in correctly resolving type
> hints being in method signatures of interfaces - which need to be
> defined using a map for class aliases - we suggest to use at least PHP

Thanks, that was the missing part. I took that and just reported the
issue at Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=702004

At least, good that 6.0 is not an LTS release. IMHO Debian support is a
must have requirement for TYPO3...
