I have completed the experiment and it is exactly as expected: 
Building Ghostscript using GCCSDK r4397 results in a working 
executable. Using GCCSDK r4459 results in an executable with broken 

Then, I tried building with r4398 and it still works, so r4398 was not 
responsible. Finally, I tried r4458 and even that worked. I double 
checked with r4459 and it fails. So, this proves that r4459 was 
responsible for the problem.
