Re: Tcsh - Gentoo


gcc treats functions like malloc and memset as builtin functions.
malloc + memset in this fashion is equivalent to calloc, and so gcc
transforms the function's body appropriately.

Use -fno-builtin or -fno-builtin-FUNCTION to inhibit this optimization.

It is a known limitation of gcc that -fno-builtin cannot be applied via
function attributes or pragmas.
