It actually is called through a function pointer
(gfc_intrinsic_sym->resolve) in intrinsic.c (resolve_intrinsic), as
with all intrinsics. You can find the backtrace by running f951
(`gfortran -print-prog-name=f951`) through gdb and setting a
breakpoint on gfc_resolve_transfer. That being said...

... in this case Jakub is right. I hadn't looked at the body of the
resolve function yet, but peeking at it tells me the transfer
expression doesn't contain support for padding information, so you'd
have to deal with it yourself in translation.

Alternatively you could call BUILT_IN_MEMSET(&tmpdecl, '\x20',
dest_word_len) just prior to the MEMCPY whenever flag_dec is set.
