Description of problem:

Hello there,

I have just tried to compile mtools-3.9.8-5 from Redhat 8.0

Here are some of the messages the compiler produces

cc: Info: mformat.c, line 976: In this statement, an array is being accessed outside the bounds specified for the array type. (subscrbounds)

The code in question seems to be

	set_word(boot->jump + 510, 0xaa55);

It's a mystery to me what's going on here. Maybe you can make more progress
with this than I can.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile with any C compiler which checks array indices, such as Compaq C.
2.
3.

I'm not going to mess about with this, since it seems to be "magic" and doesn't
cause any ill effects that I have seen.
