NBFM problem with rtl_fm on Raspberry Pi 2

there's no NBFM demodulation problem when using Debian Jessie on Raspi2

and compiling everything necessary on thr Raspi2 itself.
This distri comes with gcc 4.9.2.
Thanks to Murat for his tip to try Jessie.

Now i get useful audio - with some noise in the background, what i have
to check with raw mode.
But it's now understandable audio, what wasn't the case with Raspbian
(based on Debian Wheezy, coming with gcc 4.6.3).

kind regards,
