My attempts at upgrading to a newer version of EPICS base and support modules have foundered.  I downloaded and built base-3-15.7, synapps-6., and the latest StreamDevice.  No (major) problems there.  I had to comment out the Oriel motor support because there appears to be no OrielRegister.h but other than that everything built.

But when trying to build one of my support modules and test IOCs I get odd complaints about scalcout record support:
. . .
make[3]: Entering directory `/eda/epics/R3.15.7/modules/instrument/CaenFastPS/CaenFastPSapp/src/O.linux-x86_64'

Device using unknown record type 'scalcout', declaration created

And the resulting application dbd file contains:
device(longout, CONSTANT, devLoSoft, "Soft Channel")
device(longout, CONSTANT, devLoSoftCallback, "Async Soft Channel")
device(longout, INST_IO, devlongoutStream, "stream")
recordtype(scalcout) {
}
device(scalcout, INST_IO, devscalcoutStream, "stream")


The empty scalcout record declaration breaks things when the test IOC starts up:
. . .
cd "/eda/epics/R3.15.7/modules/instrument/CaenFastPS"
###############################################################################
# Register all support components
dbLoadDatabase "dbd/CaenFastPS.dbd"
Declaration of recordtype(scalcout) preceeded full definition.

Suggestions?
