regex.c needs to be fixed wrt C_alloca, then I could remove it from
the fixincludes tree.  It needs to wrap its procedures in another
layer of procedure indirection and have the extra layer call
``alloca( 0 );'' to clean out stale allocations.

P.S., apparently, ORBZ has decided that pacbell.net has been bad again,
so please forward to gcc-patches. and...


I make another pointless appeal to *please* stop using ORBZ.
It's a crummy service.  Too many false positives.
