I did some analyzing on Bernds system (didn't dare to break my toolchain),
and found that the strings produced by new egcs in the assembler output are
broken already.

I chased this further down, and finally found that the first character output
by a %o directive is eaten somewhere.

(gcc creates the \12 instead of \n in the assembler output, I guessed by 
using \\%o to format, so I tried that directly).

Now, somebody: please debug the octal formatter. I'm going to bed.
