I've never tried building the test programs.  I am building
cross-compilers, and was under the impression that the test suite didn't
work very well for cross-compilers.

But the cases I have seen cause the compiler to crash after a few seconds
of compiling the code (longer than it should have taken to compile the

But earlier versions (up through 1.0.3) have compiled these same
pragmas with no warnings or errors of any kind.  And the egcs snapshot
for an i960-wrs-vxworks target still compiles this code with no warnings
or errors.

Perhaps the problem is this - the i386-wrs-vxworks target is new.  I 
ported 1.0.3 to work for this target myself (by following information
I found on the web).  What should I look for to find out how pragmas
work for a specific target?
