RE: Problems compiling 1.7.0 on redhat el4 64bit

Disabling optimizations is definitely an option. I should check to see if disabling optimizations just for the one problem file makes the issue go away. No reason to disable optimizations for all files if necessary.

We have decided to only compile for 32bit and use that on all our 32 and 64 bit redhat systems. So from our perspective this issue is closed.

I don't think we should revert this change, as it's a symptom of a compiler bug. If my understanding of this thread is correct, you could just disable optimizations for your RHEL 4 builds, and things should work, no?
