I have access to a fast box that isn't otherwise in use at the moment so 
I'm taking a look.  r246225 builds OK.  r246226 does not.  So it is 
Bernd's combine patch.  A little experimenting shows that the compare 
difference is triggered by the use of -gtoggle in stage2, which is not 
used in stage3.  Otherwise stage2 and stage3 generate identical code. 
The bug is apparently due to a problem with handling debug insns in the 
combine patch.
