Release Status: release

        While testing one of Paul Eggert's patches that fixes a problem on
        64 bit big-endian systems, the IRIX compiler (which defaults to warning
        about a number of things) turned up a comment inside a comment that
        appears on inspection to be a bug.

        There are several other probably important warnings the IRIX compiler
        presented, mostly in relation to casting from a pointer to a smaller
        int (when compiling in 64 bit mode for IRIX64), but also in a couple
        places where an unsigned int (RLIMTYP) is compared with 0.

        The IRIX compiler also warns many times about variables that are
        declared or set, but never used.  Are you interested in having those
        fixed up too?

        I haven't tried to come up with a situation where the bug would be
