Re: List of bugs that *must* be fixed before releasing Hamm

> egcc              17768  libc6 bug in mathematical functions [114]  (Galen Hazelwood <galenh@micron.net>)

Fixing this bug exceeds my capabilities. I have send a message to the
egcs-bugs list asking them to look into the current reports, but have
received no responses.

The bug only occurs with optimisation enabled, so it can be worked around.
egcc is the secondary compiler on the architectures for which hamm will be
released (i386 and m68k AFAIK). Personally, I don't think this bug should
delay the release of hamm as 2.0. Brian, please consider downgrading this to
Severity: normal .

This will be obsoleted when will be accepted into frozen.

This affects all our gcc-based compilers. I've fixed it for egcc in
1.0.3-0.2 ; a similar fix ought to work for gcc and altgcc too.

I have indications that this will be fixed in egcs 1.1, but the precise
nature of the fix the egcs developers will choose is as yet unclear.

This is hopefully fixed in which I just uploaded.

This is fixed in 1.0.3a-0.2 .
