gcc's layering is.. strange.
If I recall correctly (it's been a while since I last looked at GCC
guts), the exact intermediate code generated by the front end code
generator depends in some cases on what primitive instructions are
available on the target platform.
Also, I believe that uninitialized variable detection is done by the
optimizer during flow analysis, not by the front end..
