 # This is Solaris x86 specific GCC run-time environment patch, which
 # makes it possible to reliably deploy .init snippets. Trouble is that
 # Solaris linker erroneously pads .init segment with zeros [instead of
 # nops], which is bound to SEGV early upon program start-up. This bug
 # was recognized by GCC team [it is mentioned in source code], but
 # workaround apparently and obviously erroneously slipped away in some
 # newer GCC release. This patch compensates for this mishap by dropping
 # modified values-X*.o into GCC installation tree. Object modules in
 # question are normally provided by Sun and linked prior crtbegin.o.
 # Modified versions are additionally crafted with custom .init segment,
 # which does some magic:-)
 Not sure if this could/should be integrated into the pkgsrc gcc
 package?  (that would only fix folks using pkgsrc gcc, not the one
 provided by sun)
 Maybe just add a reference to this in a MESSAGES file?
