H.J.Lu's toolchain performs slightly better than gcc-2.95, and worse than gcc-3.0 (just tried it here). One thing that makes this case "better" is to increase the optimization level from -O0 to -O2. It still doesn't fix it, however, so this is a gcc-3.0 bug, for generating asm that the assembler can't handle. Follow the steps for reporting a gcc bug, either to the Debian bts or gcc upstream. -- Ryan Murray, Debian Developer (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) The opinions expressed here are my own.
