We’ve missed that Wheezy LTS was EOL by the end of May, and after a discussion about old long term releases after 2.9 we’ve dropped the build environment for Wheezy.

Such old long term distributions always force us to use defensive programming strategies and not entirely use C++11 everywhere. We’re eagerly waiting on SLES11 and Ubuntu14 EOL in the coming years currently preventing feature implementations with OpenSSL ABIs and whatnot.

Anyhow, sorry to say, but plan a dist-upgrade to at least Jessie or re-build the deb-src for your Wheezy box. It should work, we won’t support it though.
