/usr/bin/gprof core dump, Redhat 6.0 Alpha.

I have an executable that causes /usr/bin/gprof on Redhat
6.0 Alpha to give a segmentation fault and dump core, as in
The ep.S.1.gprof and gmon.out files are available in
I have mail from Ian Taylor (email@example.com) which says
Jeff Law has checked in a patch to egcs which appears
to fix the problem:

* expr.c (emit_block_move): Properly handle case where one
of the block move arguments has a queued increment or
(clear_storage): Similarly. Fix formatting goof.
Let me know if i can provide additional information.

it seems to me that this bug is unrelated to bug 3970.
I don't see any files at ftp://ftp.cs.arizona.edu/pub/phil
I'd like to see source code as well as the profiling data.
I have verified Ian's diagnosis and have uploaded egcs-1.1.2-17
which has the fix which Ian suggests.

where did you upload egcs-1.1.2-17 to? i cannot find it on the rufus
database since i want to fix the problem on my machine as well.
egcs-1.1.2-19 is part of rawhide (see http://developer.redhat.com/
for general information or http://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html
for a list of mirror sites - see the rawhide directory).
egcs-1.1.2-19 still seg faults with my code when i invoke gprof on the
You need to recompile gprof (or get binutils-22.214.171.124.23-5).
Also bug #4395.
cannot find the binutils-126.96.36.199.23-5 on rawhide. only ...23-4. when
can i expect it to be posted there? h.
Rawhide releases happen once a week and binutils-188.8.131.52.23-5
should be in the next one.
