Yeah, I found other cases in Java and in c-*.c.  In one case, we are
building the address of a LABEL_DECL for a computed goto

Interestingly enough, mark_addressable refuses to mark the label as
addressable, but we need the label addressable so that it's processed
properly by the compute_may_aliases machinery.

Given that we need to be very consistent about addressability marking in
the FEs, wouldn't we be better off doing this in build1_stat()?
