No, this broke Emacs on SPARC/Solaris (and on other platforms I suspect). The
Emacs folks have already patched their CVS tree, but this option shouldn't
have made its way into GCC 3.3 in the first place because Emacs is supposed
to be part of the release criteria.
This is a big regression on SPARC/Solaris.
