wstreams compilation error

I need to install wvdial, for which wstreams is a dependency.
When i try to build wstreams through sbopkg, i get an error... the last few lines pasted below.. can someone figure what is the underlying problem and how to fix this?

I am running slackware-arm 14.2 on raspberry pi

In file included from ./include/wvstream.h:10:0,
                 from streams/
./include/iwvstream.h:38:2: note: candidate: IWvStream::SelectRequest::SelectRequest(bool, bool, bool)

Would you like to continue processing the rest of the
queue or would you like to abort?  If this failed
package is a dependency of another package in the queue
then it may not make sense to continue.
