Thanks for looking into this and providing a detailed description of
the issues.

I've applied your libpkgconf patch as is[1] but the std::aligned_storage
change needs some work[2]. Specifically, after some digging, it appears
a suitable replacement for:

std::aligned_storage<N>::type data;


alignas (std::max_align_t) unsigned char data[N];

Or, if N is likely to be less than max alignment:

alignas (std::min (alignof (std::max_align_t), N)) unsigned char data[N];

To make sure, I've written a test[3] and it passes on all the main

Let me know if there are any other issues.
