The configure file for nget includes the check for and removal of
the -fomit-frame-pointer flag:
WARNING: cannot build with -fomit-frame-pointer on x86.
gcc does not handle exceptions properly in code compiled with
-fomit-frame-pointer on x86 platforms.
In particular it references the GCC bug:
This bug has been marked as fixed for some time, so this check
should either be tied to a GCC version, or removed altogether.
