[erlang-questions] Re: Error building R12B-4 on SPARC T1000

I see that in the README it says:

     gcc-4.3.0 has a serious optimizer bug. It produces an
     Erlang emulator that will crash immediately. The bug
     is supposed to be fixed in gcc-4.3.1.

I'm going to get that this is the problem I'm having with
the latest GCCFSS (v4.2.1).  The erlc compiler runs the
emulator but it crashes and it gets hung.
