Re: port-vax/46098 gcc-4.5.3 breaks at least boot blocks

(This is cc'ed to gnats-admin%netbsd.org@localhost to record the patch - please
drop that CC if this thread wanders off :)

Had a little play to determine which specific feature of -O2 was
causing issues with the boot blocks.

There are 31 different -f options enabled by -O2, and it took the full
five build passes to binary chop it down to -freorder-blocks :)

Thanks to Martin's existing patch it was easy to retest & the minimal
patch would now be:

diff -u -2 -r1.38 Makefile
--- sys/arch/vax/boot/boot/Makefile     22 Jan 2011 19:19:24 -0000      1.38

Working on the assumption that -freorder-blocks might be generally
toxic I've just started a netbsd-6 build with the following patch and
will give it a test tomorrow:

diff -u -2 -r1.108 sys.mk

Can people recall other issues probably caused by gcc-4.5.3 in
netbsd-6 or current?
