#1543 stdcall / -O2 weirdness

gcc (462)

* Upgrading to MinGW / GCC 4.5.2 fails to build the Ecere SDK. *

Tarball @ http://ecere.com/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=sdk;a=snapshot;h=749c7ae207a94ffbb0a9e36b54c9090f69cc7876;sf=tbz2
With mingw installed, you should be able to just do 'mingw32-make' from the sdk/ directory .
The bootstrap compiler executables in sdk\compiler\bootstrap\obj\bin.win32 will crash (ecp/ecc/ecs) on "Building eAR command line tool..."

If optimization is disabled (take out -O2 from CFLAGS in sdk/compiler/bootstrap/ecere/Makefile) when compiling the bootstrap ecere static library the problem does not happen anymore.
If sdk/compiler/bootstrap/ecere/bootstrap/instance.c is modified to the attached version, the problem goes away as well, but we get the warnings:

Warning: resolving ___ecereDll_Load_ecere@4 by linking to ___ecereDll_Load_ecere
Warning: resolving ___ecereDll_Unload_ecere@4 by linking to ___ecereDll_Unload_ecere

Note that the work around adds __attribute__((stdcall)) to __ecereDll_Unload_ecere .
The definition for this function is WITHOUT an stdcall definition, in sdk\compiler\bootstrap\ecere\bootstrap\ecere.main.c .

Note that there are 2 instance.c files that ends up in libecereBootstrap.a (compiled as instance.c.o and instance.o)

Please contact me at jerstlouis@gmail.com by email or GTalk/Jabber if you have any questions.

Many thanks.

    Replacing sdk/compiler/bootstrap/ecere/bootstrap/instance.c with this works around the problem
