VPNC connection fails after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy) 

My corporate VPN connection got broken after I have updated my desktop to Kubuntu 13.10.

First I have started the Networkmanager's vpnc service in debug mode:

sudo /usr/lib/NetworkManager/nm-vpnc-service --debug

When connecting to the VPN the following message had been shown at the end of the log:

S5.5 do xauth reply
[2014-01-12 09:54:00]
/usr/sbin/vpnc: server requested domain, but none set (use "Domain ..." in config or --domain

The KDE networkmanager applet do not provide input for the domain, so it had to be workarounded:

Edit the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/[VPN connection name]

And insert the following line under the [vpn] section:

Siemens Gigaset C475IP base station disassembed 

At the local flea market I have found a box with an ethernet port and and a DECT logo. I have bought it just for fun hoping that I will found some kind of embedded Linux running hackable stuff inside. Well after opening it I had to became disappointed.
Just for fun and archiving puposes I post my findings here.

The board markings:
W30852-Q1813-B101-5 and

The board's heart is a PCD80725ELF ARM base microcontroller made by the NXP.

I have not found any relevant information on the web about it, so I have asked the Philips (NXP) support, and they said:

All DECT activities of Philips Semiconductors were transferred to DSP Group in 2007. http://www.dspg.com/English/ They may still have that data sheet archived.

I have contacted with the DSP Group's support but they have not answered.

The other notable parts on the board:
S29AL008 (1Mbit CMOS flash)
CY7C1041CV33 (512Kbit RAM)
Atmel AT45DB161D-SU (2 MByte SPI flash)
Atmel 24C265 EEPROM
CP2200 single chip ethernet controller by Silabs
An unidentified DECT module possibly made by the Siemens

Building QCA (Qt cryptographic architecture) library on Ubuntu 13.10 with Qt5 

I have tried to build the QCA library from the KDE git repository (git clone git://anongit.kde.org/qca.git) with Qt5. (The Ubuntu 13.10 distribution ships only QCA built with Qt4 in the repositories).

The cmake failed with:

CMake Error in CMakeLists.txt:
Imported target "Qt5::Core" includes non-existent path


in its INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES. Possible reasons include:

* The path was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

* An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

* The installation package was faulty and references files it does not

The solution was creating a symlink from the mkspecs:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/qt5/mkspecs/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/

Mplab C18 to Mplab XC8 porting notes 

Just some random notes:

warning: (335) unknown pragma "udata"

Remove idata and udata pragmas.

(975) invalid format specifier or type modifier

Change %S string printf format specifier to %s (lower case).

Results a malformed string

If the next character after the escaped character is between [a-fA-F] then use a double quote between them:
