Wow.  These latest changes are really causing a problem.  Actually the 
only file I changed was glibc, but is caused 214 unexpected errors in gcc 
and required a sed in sysklogd.

It's getting late and we'll need to investigate.  I'll look at it tomorrow.

All the gcc failures look like:

FAIL: c-c++-common/asan/asan-interface-1.c   -O0  execution test

with different gcc switches.  The most common is in the files like
c-c++-common/asan/bitfield-?.c  where the ? is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
