while preparing a native NetBSD OpenOffice package, I've found some 
optimization problems in devel/pth. 
Attaching gdb it reports a segfault but at that point the stack is already 
too thoroughly thrashed to get anything useful out of it. So I've just 
tried to disable optimization (-O0) and the bug was gone. (Any attempt to 
enable a little bit of optimization was futile however. Even -O and 
switching the difference again off via -f statements doesn't help). 

So, what's the best way to resolve this? Should I just go ahead and disable 
optimization for building pth? If yes, for all architectures or just i386?

My system: NetBSD 1.5ZA from 2001/12/23, i386, pkgsrc from 2002/01/26.
