Was the bug ever fixed that caused gcc 2.7.2 to lose when building
with -O2 or higher and not using -fno-strength-reduce.  I. e. can I
safely remove -fno-strength-reduce from my makefiles if I'm still
using -O6 (not sure if anything even happens above 2 or 3... 6 is just
the traditional "turbo-build" option :-).

I searched my personal archives of current-users and port-i386, but
didn't find any reference to this strength-reduce bug ever being
