You've saved the day in more ways than one.
A few days ago I posted about a possible problem with a floating
point test called the UCBTEST. After examining the source code
of this test, I see violations of aliasing rules throughout.
It's hard to efficiently manipulate variables without them.
Of course, this code was written before the C99 standard and
so is exempt. But the use of "-fno-strict-aliasing" will
apply with the UCBTEST as well.
Thanks again for the information.
