Actually, I seem to remember the stage2 compiler was dumping core,
but I'm not certain now. Others have reported that "mplayer" dumps
core when built with it's preferred optimizations with gcc 3.3, but
not with gcc 3.2.3, which I found to be the case, too. (For the k6-2,
that's with "-O4 -march=k6-2 -mcpu=k6-2 -pipe -ffast-math

With that, ``gmake BOOT_CFLAGS="-O1 -frename-register" bootstrap''
works fine: the stage2 and stage3 compilers are identical.
