Very well. What is the proper procedure then?
Is there some automated testing setup?

Anyway, I volunteer to run any tests on FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE amd64.

I just performed a "gmake -j8" build on 4.7.0 sources patched with [1]
(which is the same as before but with $^ changed to $< as suggested by
Moritz Wilhelmy), it appears functional and as far as I can tell
passes "gmake check" (it doesn't seem to print the success/failure
statistics at the end though).

Should I try to adopt the patch from ticket 526 to the latest sources
and repeat the test? I will if this will push the things forward (this
will happen tomorrow though).
