Subject: Broken with gcc 3.3 and optimization flag
With gcc 3.3 and optimization flag (-O), 'make test' hangs forever... Tested on : * Solaris 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 with gcc 3.3 * i386-freebsd 5.2.1 with cc 3.3.3 Adding flag : 'OPTIMIZE' => '-O0', in "Makefile.PL" solves the problem. Maybe an "optimization bug" in gcc 3.3.3 ???
From: bukys@cs.rochester.edu
For what it's worth, a few more data points: I've also seen the same "make test" hang on the following OS/compiler combinations. AIX 5.1, cc (C for AIX Compiler, Version 6) Linux 2.4.20-19.9smp (RedHat 9), gcc 3.2.2 Unfortunately OPTIMIZE=-O0 or -g is not helping either. Meanwhile the following works with no problem, default -O and all: Solaris 5.8, gcc 2.95.3 Solaris 5.9, gcc 2.95.3 Solaris 5.9, gcc 3.3.2 Maybe this is an OS/library issue related to signal handling?
