Description of problem:
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile with any C compiler which checks array indices, such as Compaq C.
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.
