Indeed - but going to ELF would side step these problems.   As for an
AOF dumper - do you have access to DecAOF in Acorn C/C++?  IF there's a
minimal case, then someone else could have a look at it.

Additionally, on 30th July, you referred to a code generation bug with
alloca - what is the status of this?

The reason I suggest we are a way from a release is that we have yet to
produce a working GCC 3.3 in RISC OS :-|
