Indirectly. The compiler was changed to detect more code errors than it  used
to. This is part of the format string analysis done by Bill Sommerfeld and 
continued by myself.

Now, as of yesterday, it compiled cleanly on i386. Why the compiler detects
some things on other architectures that it happily accepts on i386 is a
mystery to me.

I'll try to fix this later today. Quick guess: can you please, in line 136 of
io.c, change 

e_lab -s 
(int) (e_lab - s)

Please report whether this works, and also the next error
that you see on Sparc. Hm.. actually, maybe you can run a "make -k dependall"
in your src directory to a log file, and report all problems the compiler
finds on Sparc?
