> changes in the system include files which affected the result?
I thought that too, so I put features.h.orig back ontop of features.h.
And it still kept compiling. So I thought, I must have modified
the original back too. No problem, I'm compiling glibc, I have the
source lying around. diff'd features.h against 2.2.4-1 and
2.2.3-9 and came back with nothing... the file is original.
Which really wigged me out :)

Now that you mention it. It probably looks more and more like a g++ bug.
I can't compile that test program with gcc or g++. However, since my
results _seem_ to be tainted, I'll run through them again this morning.
I'll get back to you in the afternoon.

I was using the latest apt-get dist-upgrade'd version, which is 2.2.3-9.
Incidentally the last version that compiles on hppa.

I'll do a proper bug report when I get into the office.
- libc version
- gcc version
- ld version
Test basic program with _BSD_SOURCE (gcc and g++)
Test with #undef _BSD_SOURCE (gcc and g++)
Outline previous description.
Test it on 712/60 and 715/50.
