But hasn't it been hacked on in NetBSD-specific ways already?  That is,
don't we already apply NetBSD-specific patches to it when rolling in a

If fixing this bug would be seen as unwarranted modification of the
compiler, then the only choice I see is to back off to an earlier
compiler, before the bug went in.
