Unfortunately compiling gcc.c-torture/execute/930614-2.c on the Alpha with
-O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops now fails.  It also fails without
VRP if -fssa used with -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops (SSA also
calls life_analysis).

$ ../../../xgcc -B../../../ -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops -fssa -fno-vrp -S 930614-2.c
930614-2.c: In function `main':
930614-2.c:16: warning: implicit declaration of function `abort'
930614-2.c:19: warning: implicit declaration of function `exit'

I haven't looked at this enough to determine the correct fix.  Should SSA
and VRP be clearing / freeing global_live_at_start and global_live_at_end?
