It's great we have root 6 with ARM support, but root 6 breaks API, thus perl-SOOT fails to build. I don't think it's wise to do this rebase in Fedora 24 now.

This fixes my two problems. They were my last showstoppers for Fedora 24, so I'm ready to go.

@ppisar: I'm not sure that Mattias has any choice about rebasing to root 6. The root maintainers are quite clear about it, that they do not expect root to work with gcc 6 and indeed it doesn't work. So rebasing gcc breaks root without Mattias's update. So if you block the root rebase, you need to block the gcc one too.

I seem to be having trouble giving feedback. This is the third try...

The root 5 version that was in F24 before this update was completely broken. It had failed the F24 mass rebuild and was FTBFS. Root 5 is incompatible with gcc 6. The old cint c++ interpreter does not understand all the new features used in the system's g++ headers. This was not an issue about updating root to version 6 in F24 or not, it was a question about having root in F24 or not.

Then the rebase is acceptable.
