The example program given at the above URL always gives the expected
result when I tried it with FreeBSD 4-STABLE so the bug probably does
not exist in gcc 2.95.x which FreeBSD 4.x uses.

My opinion is that it does not seem to concern FreeBSD 4-STABLE at all.
FreeBSD 5.x might be another question though, since that uses a newer
version of gcc which might exhibit the bug.
