in thread 64-bit *nix/gcc expertise required (THIS IS NOT OFF TOPIC!)

    But, if the OP was off topic, I would have labelled it as such. Just as I have always done. ... Yes. This is directly related to my attempt to fix a bug in the 64-bit linux build of Devel::Size.

Ah! The explanation that this was related to a problem in Devel::Size would have been useful to see in the first paragraph of your original post. Without that detail, your post was an interesting technical question about C compilers on different platforms, seemingly unrelated to Perl. Hence, my consideration request to mark the node off-topic.

    seemingly unrelated to Perl.

    Dog forbid that we here discuss a little about what makes our language and many of its extensions tick without clearing it with hit&run considerers. Thanks mate.

    Maybe I'll just label every one of my future OPs as [OT]--just in case.
