Trying to use lint always fails with SIGSEGV.


# cd src/lib/libkvm && make
lint -chapbxzF  -DLIBC_SCCS -i kvm.c
lint: /usr/libexec/lint1 got SIGSEGV
*** Error code 1

The cross-lint used in building this system had no problem (running on i386).

This may be related to arm gcc lossage which also causes PR
port-shark/16424. I see "rxvt" from pkgsrc missbehave sometimes too,
but haven't found an exact way to reproduce the lossage there.
