    Pardon me? Baking Soda? This GCC works just fine.. that error above is
    from installing it incorrectly.. I have had it installed <the the
    gcc-2.7.2.1.bin.tar.gz from tsx-11> and it works flawlessly. The ONLY
    difference between 2.7.2.1 and 2.7.2 is the strength reduce bug is taken
    out <the whole strength reduce optimization was removed>. That is it :>
