I am still working on that...

This is something that is currently holding FreeBSD's switch to the
never compiler. As soon as the patch hits the gcc-3_4-branch, I am going
to enlist FreeBSD-current users as gcc 3.4.2-snap testers. Could please you
or Mark apply the change to the branch, because without it gcc 3.4.x is
completely broken on FreeBSD/ia64.
