[Tkinter-discuss] GCC Error when building under Irix 6.5

HI Folks,

I'm working on a port of a Python/Tkinter project to Irix 6.5, but 
attempts to compile results in a GCC error of a type I've not seen 
before.  Python 2.3.3 by itself builds properly.  This turns out to be 
an issue with the optimization flag.  If any of you run into this, 
start by checking the -O flag in your Python Makefile.  If this is a 
FAQ, sorry but I couldn't find it via Google.

Example of the GCC error:

gcc -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I. 
-I./Include  -DPy_BUILD_CORE  -c ./Modules/timemodule.c -o 
./Modules/timemodule.c: In function `floattime':
./Modules/timemodule.c:941: Internal compiler error in 
`gen_tagged_type_instantiation_die', at dwarf2out.c:9308
Please submit a full bug report.
See <URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/faq.html#bugreport> for 
make: *** [Modules/timemodule.o] Error 1
Command returned 2
