Hello. I'm not sure which file you mean, and it may be a NetBSD/
pkgsrc related problem, but I can attest that without the earlier
included patch, the library produces code that will fail to link an
executable, because GC_push_regs is referenced from another place in
What file is it you indicate having removed GC_push_regs from?
