correct.  CIRCLEQ was broken with GCC 4.8.  TAILQ appears fine.

the observations were that nvi(1) would hang while blocking
signals (ie, you had to kill -9 from another window), and
i used tests/lib/libc/db/ to eventually locate the problem.

in these cases, the *INSERT*() macros were never inserting for
the head of the queue, which would cause the iteration macros
to loop forever.
