I don't know, yet.  But, special casing these two intrinsics
in gfc_is_constant_expr seems wrong.  With hundreds of intrinsics
procedures, are these the only 2 that need this special handling?
If yes, then why?  If no, then we need to add special casing for
all intrinsics.

Sorry, misread your comment.  I was thinking about something
like 'i = irand(j)' verseus 'i = irand(23)' where the argument
is optional.

With the toy programs I've written this morning involving rand(),
f951 never enter gfc_is_constant_expr().  Do you have a small
example that exhibits this problem?
