More explicitly typing mount hangs as in:

     $ mount
.......wait forever......

but mount a file system doesn't.

    $ mount /mnt 

if fstab has an entry works

    $ mount /dev/hd0s11 /home 

works. (as long as you have permission)

On IRC someone (when I first found this problem) had dismissed this as
a 'feature' of my build, I accepted this, but continue to build w/o

But in looking gcc3.* already had bugs posted against it for
optimization problems under some circumstances.

AFAIK this hasn't changed with gcc.  

I would have posted a bug against gcc or the Hurd or both if
appropriate and considered posting one, but for the dismissal.

Is the appropriate course to post a bug against, the Hurd for using
- -O3, gcc for the problem and the mount command itself?  Where should
these be posted, bug-hurd?

Does gcc need another bug report for this particular program failure?
