Actually, it doesn't compile with a broken glibc that uses invalid asm
statements in optimized macros for ANSI-C Standard functions.  Older
gcc's used to silently generate bad code; egcs now emits error and
refuses to compile them.  The problems are fixed in recent releases of
glibc, but there are still some old versions around.

I don't think so, unless we're talking about different things.  I've
been compiling Kaffe with egcs for quite a long time, and it has never 
been a problem for me.
