well, not sure this is on his list, but anyhow, c++/8183 has been a
problem for a while.

Sometime Sept 12 2002 the mainline, then 3.3 (experimental) worked for
sparc64-{linux,solaris*} targets. Then, sometime, it stopped. I think
before the end if Sept 2002.

I really don't know how to hunt the bug down... :-( it might be kernel
