[New-bugs-announce] [issue4594] Can't compile with -O3, on ARM, with gcc 3.4.4

New submission from John Stracke <francis+python+bug at thibault.org>:

I downloaded the source to Python 3.0 onto my Nokia N810, an ARM-based
Linux machine.  The native gcc is 3.4.4 (upgrading might be possible,
but would certainly be a pain).  I was able to build only by switching
from -O3 to -O2; -O3 caused a compiler crash.

Now, this isn't really Python's fault; gcc really shouldn't be crashing.
 However, it'd be nice if configure had a way to specify the
optimization level--I had to go in and edit the generated Makefile by
hand.  Better yet would be if configure could recognize the platform and
set the -O level accordingly.
