Hi Ed,

My guess is that you are using the Slackware distribution - if not mail me
and I'll extract the Readme - but it's just a bug in the compiler, the
earlier version works.

The answer is on the Slackware CD Rom - read /contrib/gcc2721.README.
Apparently it's a bug wih this version of gcc, and the previous version is
on the CD as a work-around.
