Indeed. The alpha build fails on a peephole optimization; I created
bootstrap/9180 for it along with a small test case.
We could "#ifdef sparc" around the static declaration, though that doesn't
solve the real issue. And I don't like conditional compilation in any
So what's the right thing to do? I'm happy to work on it, but the alpha
fix isn't really very obvious and I don't have a powerpc-linux machine.
