Hmm. I wonder if 2.9.1 has problems, then.
Use 'objdump' on the .o file. 'objdump --disassemble object.o' should do

Then run 'diff' on the two output files. Keep an eye out for instructions
which disassemble to the same assembly, but have different numeric
representations. (instruction location is the first output column, numeric
representation ["machine code"] is the second column, and the instruction
source ["assembly code"] is the third column.)
