Another thing to try is to apply the patches for gcc-126.96.36.199. I've
done that on my (i386) machine, and have not experienced any problems.
Supposedly 188.8.131.52 fixes the problem that required the use of
-fno-strength-reduce to avoid miscompiled code with -O2 on the i386.
I could send a PR, but there really wasn't much work involved in
applying the FSF patch.
