gcj-dbtool seems to crash with signal 6 (Abort) each time is is called, or at
least when called as
gcj-dbtool -n foo.db.tmp
This was in mock, in pure ppc64 chrooted environment.
The underlying kernel is 2.6.9-34.EL.
Initial investigation shows this might not be related to any recent change in
gcc, but glibc, particularly:
- add -fasynchronous-unwind-tables to CFLAGS (#216518)
In particular it is something in unwind info of libc-2.5.90.so, replacing
2.5.90-8 /lib64/libc-2.5.90.so with 2.5.90-7 libc-2.5.90.so cures this.
Unfortunately gdb is upset too so it is hard to debug it and I haven't managed
to reproduce it with more simple testcases so far.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.5.90-10 in rawhide.
