Hmm. Yeah, if I remove -O0 and instead set CFLAGS to -ffloat-store the
error goes away.
So, would we want to use that just for this file, or for the whole build?
Well the latest documentation for gcc gives 2 options: -ffloat-store and
-fexcess-precision=<style> which are documented at
For PostGIS we only applied the flags for specific files, because of
severe performance warnings in older versions of the gcc documentation
such as this: http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/gcc/gcc_10.html. I have no
idea whether these warnings still hold true or not for more modern
ISTM that the best solution would be to determine whether or not
-fexcess-precision=standard does the right thing (and also determine the
performance hit) or take a look at the "excess precision" notes in the
older documentation to see if parts of the code can be rearranged to
eliminate the effect.
