   The problem appears to be bad code generation when cc1 is compiled with 
-O2.  Building gcc with -O1 seems to generate a compiler that works.

   The vax port has been changed to use -O1 (with a few other specific 
optimizations needed to allow other parts of the vax build to work) on 
HEAD.  A pullup patch for the 4.0 branch is forthcoming.
