I've just suceeded to make build the current-srcs supped at Jan. 13 to use egcs compiler on my Alpha PC164. 

	>g++ -v
	Using builtin specs.
	gcc version egcs-2.91.60 19981201 (egcs-1.1.1 release)

When I tried to the following simple c++ source ( "" ),

	#include <iostream.h>
	#include <float.h>

	int main()
		cout << DBL_MIN << endl;


I got the warning,

	> g++ -mieee
	/usr/lib/ warning: reference to compatibility vfork(); 	
	include <unistd.h> for correct reference

and it core dumped.

	Floating point exception (core dumped)
Could someone tell me what the warning message means?

Does "-mieee" option not work for the egcs on NetBSD Alpha?

Any comment will be welcome.
