     Strangely, I couldn't reproduce this bug on Solaris 8 using any
     of GCC 3.3, 4.0, or the Sun C compiler.  (Actually the Sun
     compiler gives some warnings and errors we should fix, but
     they're not related to this problem.)

I suggest that we don't spend time on these problems.  Frankly, I'm beginning 
to think that it's a gcc problem rather than our own problem.

I suggest that we just mention in the release notes that problems have been 
reported on Solaris, and recommend that Solaris users compile with 
CFLAGS="-g -O0".

Similarly with the Mac issue just mention that the Mac gcc 4.0.0 must be 
build 5026 and that build 4061 causes problems.

I haven't tried RC5 under GNU/Hurd yet.  I'll try to do that in the next few
