I've turned off my site-config file, so the default CFLAGS are in
use. Debian has no special CFLAGS for sparc32 that I can see; it rams
-O2 in for everything.
(As for configure options, debian/rules and debian/sysdeps/* don't show
any particularly shocking ones. I've tried forcing BUILD_CFLAGS of -O2
as Debian do: no change. Likewise if I use --disable-omitfp (not that
-fomit-frame-pointer does much on sparc).
I'll have to look through the Debian GCC and binutils patches again, I
think: I might have to resort to installing a minimal Debian development
installation and trying a build in there (although that feels like
giving up: I won't learn anything that way).
