The ICC is wrong. If they are supporting a GNU extension, they must do it the same way GNU does it, to actually be supporting it. The main issue here is that any reader of the object file, not just genassym.sh, will be unable to differentiate  vs. . What does ICC do for ""? Is it '1' also, or is it '0', like it's supposed to be? I, for one, would not be unhappy to see the GCC-ism fade into history. -- Terry _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
