Looks like this one might not be happy that librabbitmq is installed under

These errors appear to be due to the extension code targeting an older
version of rabbitmq-c than what's currently in default.  rabbitmq-c is
still maturing, and sometimes we make changes to its API.  At this
point, code using librabbitmq should probably document the revision ID
of rabbitmq-c it is known to work against.

It would be good to bring those extensions up to date to work against
the current librabbitmq.  I'd be happy to help by reviewing the code for
one of the projects, if someone can tell me which project I should
