I'm pleased to say that the latest snapshot (i.e. ``gcc version
egcs-2.92.11 19980921 (gcc2 ss-980609 experimental)'') compiles fine
under NEXTSTEP 3.3 with these changes, and appears to operate correctly.
P.S. Toon Moene <email@example.com> has told me that the NEXTSTEP
3.2 assembler doesn't the operator pseudo-op for arbitrary sections used
by FRAME_SECTION_ASM_OP. However, because NeXT's assembler is based on
GNU as, it is free software, so 3.2 users should be able to install the
NEXTSTEP 3.3 as (either by obtaining a binary, or by compiling it from
the source NeXT provided).
