On my Alphaserver 800 5/333 (with a 21164A-2 processor, according to the dmesg),
I've tried compiling NetBSD, both 2.1 and 3.0, with some optimization flags.
Here's my /etc/mk.conf:
This, for the most part, works well, only g++ and groff give problems. All
programs (even a simple Hello World) compiled with g++ segfault.
A characteristic backtrace can be seen in bug pkg/32352. In the same way, groff
segfaults with some manpages (the one for spamd from the spamassassin package,
The 'canonical' 2.1 binaries don't show any problems.
So, what I wanted to ask: is this a known problem with either g++, NetBSD, the
EV56 or anything else? If nothing worked, I'd think the compiler flags weren't
right for my machine, but it's only g++ and groff (and then only in some cases),
everything else works fine.
