I've been doing full builds of the world on my Sun-3/150.  Every time
to date, make has coredumped at the same point while building libc.
And the most recent attempt was with a make binary built from source
including the off-by-one fix.  The logfile always looks like this:

[...normal "make build" output up to this point...]
	cpp -DPROF  -DNLS -DYP -DLIBC_SCCS -DSYSLIBC_SCCS -I/usr/src/lib/libc/include -D__DBINTERFACE_PRIVATE -DPOSIX_MISTAKE -DFLOATING_POINT -I/usr/src/lib/libc/arch/m68k /usr/src/lib/libc/arch/m68k/string/memset.S | as -o memset.po
	Segmentation fault - core dumped
	*** Error code 139
	*** Error code 1

Since it's done this with two different make binaries, I'm hoping it's
not a heisenbug, and am building a make binary with -g in the hope of
tracking it down.  I'm sending this note in the hope that someone else
will notice something I haven't....

This doesn't happen on the SPARC, fwtw; I've done two full "make build"
runs recently that ran to completion with no trouble at all, which is
why I'm sending this to port-sun3 instead of current-users.
