Fabrice or Paul:

Can we get this added?  This patch has been posted to the list 4 or 5 times
in various incarnations in the last year or soj.   I posted a long message with
the logs from the compile on why the current code is wrong, and why this patch 
it.   The basic problem is that code uses a sizeof construct, instead of the 
size of
the string.  What happens is all the labels end up being truncated, and the op.c
won't compile on sparc.

see analysis of this problem in
