setvbuf is called in toplev.c:
setvbuf (asm_out_file, xmalloc (IO_BUFFER_SIZE),
Now, IO_BUFFER_SIZE is defined nowhere, but some googling revealed that when
it was still defined, it was defined without further conditionals, i.e. like
so (from http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2001-03/msg01213.html):
