Believe me, I tried ages ago to get gcc to compile again, but it was
futile.  Even Richard was like "give up...it's not worth it".

Most likely, -mieee won't help if it's a malloc() problem.  I'm thinking
that malloc() is being called improperly somehow (I think this because
I've done it myself and had a bear of a time figuring it out).  I have
heard of a malloc() problem or two with glibc, but nothing that didn't
turn out to be syntax-related.  Hmmm...

Yeah, actually, send me the code anyway.  I'd like to see what's going on
with that here.  I pretty much know egcs command line options like the
back of my hand now so maybe I can try a few things that most people never
use or think of.
