Hmm, 68040...

I saw this today when building the world on my hp380 ... I had thought 
_for sure_ that I'd rebuilt with gcc 2.7.2 (in the tree now, 
-current) ... however, I had this problem today, as well. was 
seriously broken when compiled with gcc 2.7.2.  I'm wondering if this is 
an '040-specific problem.  I haven't had the chance to try it on my '020 
hp319 yet.  When I do, I'll report my findings.  However, I'm considering 
reverting the hp300 back to 2.4.5 unless Paul has any ideas...
