Description Peter Klotz 2001-08-12 09:25:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.8 i686)

Description of problem:
gcc 2.96-85 reports an internal compiler error when executing the command
make -f gcc.mak in order to compile the regex part of the boost C++ library
1.23.0 (www.boost.org).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.extract boost_1_23_0.tar.gz
2.go to the directory boost_1_23_0/libs/regex/build
3.execute the command make -f gcc.mak

Actual Results:  [root@localhost build]# make -f gcc.mak

Can you provide a preprocessed testcase (ie. add -save-temps and attach here

cregex.ii as requested
Comment 3 Peter Klotz 2001-08-17 17:59:55 EDT
In the initial bug report I used STLport 4.5b8 (www.stlport.org) to compile 
the regex library but the Internal Compiler Error also occurs if the 
preinstalled GNU STL is used instead.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-08-23 10:06:35 EDT
Should be fixed in gcc-c++-2.96-97.
Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2002-04-23 05:35:31 EDT
*** Bug 63960 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 6 Vladimir Makarov 2004-10-05 14:45:56 EDT
gcc-2.96 is too old.  Its release cycle was finished long ago.  Also
Jakub wrote about fixing the bug in gcc-2.96-97.  Therefore I am
closing the case.  If  it is still important we could reopen it.
