This patch has broken bootstrap of alpha-dec-osf4.0f (and 5.1):

The tree bootstraps up to this patch:

Sun Dec  2 09:22:25 2001  Douglas B. Rupp  <>

	* config/x-interix3 (SYSTEM_HEADER_DIR): Put back default.

but including the current one

2001-12-02  Richard Henderson  <>

	* rtl.h (mem_attrs): Rename decl to expr; adjust all users.

causes the stage2 compiler to SEGV compiling gencheck.c:

constructor_stack is NULL above.  The problem goes away if compiling with

I'll only be able to follow-up on this on monday: time to go to bed now.
