Is it reproduceable, always same ICE on the same file/line?
If yes, please attach preprocessed source (config.i;

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2003-02-18 07:44:36 EST
Are you able to reproduce it on this file (ie. does it segfault
if you run gcc -g -O2 -S config.i)?
Cannot reproduce it here (tried gcc-3.2-7, gcc-3.2.1-1 and gcc-3.2.2-1).
