expat-1.95.7

On Irix, using cc 7.4.2m, you must use -O1 (or lower)
optimization.

If you use -O2 or -O3 then you will get a SIGSEGV in
XmlInitUnknownEncoding (lib/xmltok.c - line ~1363) when
running the test for XML-Parser-2.34.

(Looks like a compiler optimization bug - the problem
also goes away if you put any printf statements in
there to see what is happening)

    Can anyone tell if this is still a case with the CVS version
    of Expat?

    Does anyone know how to detect this platform via the
    configure script?

    Given the lack of response to my request for information in
    a previous comment, I'm closing this as "Won't Fix".
