Squeak 2.9 on ARM with optimizations

Just a quick follow-up to the earlier discussion about compiling Squeak on ARM
I went back and rebuilt the VM, omitting optimizations for the module that
causes the problems with GCC-ARM (SoundCodecPlugin.c). When I try to start an
image with the resulting VM however, I get an illegal instruction and it dies.
SoundCodecPlugin.c is the only module that triggers the bug in GCC.
So, until I can get into an environment with an up-to-date ARM toolchain, the
iPaq benchmarks on Linux with optimization will have to wait for a while.
I'll try signing on to the handhelds.org mailing list and post a query about
the toolchain on their build farm...I imagine they'll update it someday.
(So for now, the gauntlet must remain where it is.. :)
