   This was on NetBSD/amd64 5.1_PATCH, having "gcc version 4.1.3
20080704 prerelease (NetBSD nb2 20081120)".

   I tried without cpuflags, but it ran into the same problem (which is
rather odd; it makes me wonder what the sse-flags do (or rather, the
lack of them)..). On my NetBSD 6 beta machine, with "gcc version 4.5.3
(NetBSD nb2 20110806)", the problem does not occur (also on amd64).

   I'm taking the easy route for now, and simply upgrading to NetBSD 6
beta on my main machine too.

Kind regards,
Jan Danielsson
