 Please understand that there is nothing ''unstable'' about current git
 head, it is exactly as stable as a release branch (but contrary to a
 release branch, we support it also if you are not a distributor).

 Why are you using {{{--extra-cflags="-fPIC"}}}?
 Why not {{{--enable-pic}}} (or neither of them)?

 option, don't you agree?

 You should first take care about this important issue (that makes your
 binaries unusable and imo unsupported - at least I consider --disable-mmx
 a pure debug option).

 I used to help do an initial compile has stuck:

 This is so outdated that it has no relevance for your problem.

 for argument '%5' in GASM Inlining

 (Generally, a line number would help, fortunately it is unneeded here.)

 What does the following show?
 {{{$ grep HAVE_EB config.h}}}

 Could you test forcing one of them to 0?
 This should lead to a permanent fix.

 build with the Oracle Compiler.

 Please do us all a favor and also test gcc.
