VM builders:

Recent updates in Squeak trunk expose an issue with the FloatMathPlugin.
This plugin should be built with compiler optimization turned off,
otherwise the plugin can crash the VM.

The Mantis report is at http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=7592
and the discussion on squeak-dev is at

Although this has not been verified on all platforms, the working
assumption should be that optimization must be turned off for
FloatMathPlugin when using gcc.
