Doh!  I wonder how much of this is a chicken-and-egg problem?  If most
fortran compilers currently generate inefficient code for these constructs
and are unable to take advantage of the vectorization benefits, I suspect
that many programmers would use alternative idioms.

Many thanks for the review.  Grr!  My apologies for the issue with the
new testcase.  I discovered during regtesting that although manual testing
with f951 worked fine, I needed to add "! { dg-options "-std=gnu" }" in
order to pass "make check".  Unfortunately, I accidentally posted the
earlier version without that tweak.  However, I much prefer your suggested
solution to make the testcase more portable.  Committed with your change.

Thanks again.

Roger
