I'd look in the shell first.  It's generated in the macro CF_GCC_ATTRIBUTES
(in aclocal.m4).

If it's the only place, you can comment-out the call for that from, since (I think) there's fallback definitions in the
header files.  But I assume that something's amiss with one of the
tools, and you may get other problems.  (This would be a problem
processing a here-document - but different from what I had).

To debug - I set the "-x" option of the shell, and redirect it to
a file, or in vile, I read it directly into a buffer, e.g.,

(that's a control/X).  I don't know what sort of tools you have.
There's an executable for OS/2 VIO vile on my webpage.
