Re: call for testers!

I'd really appreciate it if people on unusual host systems (AIX, HPPA, cygwin, etc.) could see what the effect of the patch in <> is on their bootstrap. I've gotten no responses at all, and I presume this means that lots of people have tried the patch and discovered that it works fine, or they aren't too worried about discovering latent bugs and having their bootstrap fail...

This fails on cygwin due do a comparison error in _chkstk.o.

The cygwin.asm file gets preprocessed. Since the resulting .s file that actually gets sent to the assembler isn't explicitly specified in the makefile fragment, a temporary filename gets randomly generated.

The comparison error comes from a difference in the debug name of the randomly generated temporary filename. The objectdumps of both files is the same.

I'm assuming this would happen in a lot of places, so here is a patch to fix the problem by eliminating the creation of the temporary files by specifying "-pipe" in LIBGCC2_CFLAGS.

Restrapped along with Geoff's patch on i686-pc-cygwin.

OK to install?
