When I looked into this I found a fix in place.

If this is still an issue it should be opened on the Gitlab bugtracker at https://gitlab.com/gpsd/gpsd/issues

I found this bug when trying to build the version of gpsd that came from Debian Buster and the easiest way to reproduce it is by running:

scons --help xgps=no

The problem seems to be in conjunction with an earlier hack that disables something for xgps and xgpsspeed in SConstructed. This problem seems to still exist in the currently latest version of the package I found in the gitweb.

For our purposes I used the attached patch to solve the problem (though it is a bit hacky).
