My bootstrap build fails (and has failed for the last snapshot or so)
in the comparison step.

Comparing stage2 and stage3 of the compiler
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/objdir/gcc'


Bootstrap comparison failure!
java/parse.o differs
make[1]: *** [compare] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ronis/Project/notar/objdir/gcc'
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2

I'm building on an i686-linux(2.2.18)-gnu(2.1.3) box with 

CFLAGS=CXXFLAGS=-O3 -march=i686 -funroll-loops -ffast-math
-fomit-frame-pointer -fforce-mem -fforce-addr -malign-jumps=3
-malign-functions=3 -malign-loops=3 -mpreferred-stack-boundary=3

set before I configured.



(I'm doing a bootstrap build with the default optimization parameters
and will report the results in a short while).


Here is a list of version numbers for several things installed on my system:
