Oh, my mistake --- obviously hadn't consumed enough caffeine this

[ digs around a bit... ]  However, I might have been right for the
wrong reasons.  I'm thinking Adrian is trying to build for 64-bit
HPPA (a beast the 7.4 supported-platforms matrix doesn't know about),
and is falling foul of this problem:
Teodor fixed that in the 8.0 devel cycle, but couldn't back-patch it
because it meant an on-disk layout change of gist indexes.

What I suspect is that gcc 3.3.3 doesn't have the specific error checks
I complained of in the above message, but simply generates bogus
assembly code for the incorrect C code :-(
