It's only the tip of the iceberg.  __builtin_setjmp/__builtin_longjmp is 
totally broken in GCC 4.x at anything else than -O0, see for example:
  http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2006-06/msg00577.html

We're about to submit a patch to repair it for GCC 4.2 because the Ada 
compiler does rely on it for proper operation, as explained in the head 
comment of expand_builtin_setjmp:

/* __builtin_setjmp is passed a pointer to an array of five words (not
   all will be used on all machines).  It operates similarly to the C
   library function of the same name, but is more efficient.  Much of
   the code below (and for longjmp) is copied from the handling of
   non-local gotos.

   NOTE: This is intended for use by GNAT and the exception handling
   scheme in the compiler and will only work in the method used by
   them.  */
