RE: release candidate 5 available--Solaris now passes all tests

Solaris 9 now passes all 93 tests.  Ben, I replaced the
tests/expressions/ file with the one you sent, and now
that passes the compare test.  And John, setting the CFLAGS to "-g -O0"
seems to do the trick for the issue--turning off optimization
causes no Abort messages now.

Ben, I believe you also sent an attachment for the FC4 issue I
mentioned--I'll try that out tonight.

Also, Ben, you mentioned in one of your emails about my switching from
the bash to sh shell to run the tests.  I did do that, because it seemed
I was having a problem with only 63 tests passing the first time.
However, I believe it may have been due to the path pointing to the
Solaris diff instead of the Gnu diff.  When running the make check
tests, I made sure to "path" to the Gnu diff, ran the tests with both
shells, and neither shell caused any problems with the result.

     In my experience sometimes gdb just gets arguments wrong.  It
     seems "difficult" to get them right in the presence of compiler

Occasionally I have seen that happen, but I don't think it's the case in

this instance.  My bet is that something is trashing the global
variables sometime after they've been populated.  But your point about
optimisation is a valid one.  Marshall, can you rebuild with CFLAGS="-g
-O0" and try the stack trace again?
