"solved" [Vm-dev] Adding -DNoDbgRegParms problem

In Cog/src/vm/cogit.c in moving the #include "dispdbg.h" above the #include "cointerp.h" and #include "cogit.h" like so:
appears to solve the problem.
My initial thinking is a so.
dispdg.h brings in sqAssert.h which defines PRODUCTION as 1 or 0 depending on CFLAGS passed in.
With dispbdg.h included after cogit.h, PRODUCTION was not defined and the tests in cogit.h
#if !PRODUCTION && defined(__GNUC__) && !defined(NoDbgRegParms)
# define NoDbgRegParms __attribute__ ((regparm (0)))
# define NoDbgRegParms /*empty*/
My conjecture is as follows (I am NOT fluent in the semantics of cpp, just a script kiddy who bit the bullet and rtfm this week (: ).
In the ....../build/vm/Makefile, $(interp)?.o is generated prior to cogit.o.
gcc3x-cointerp.c includes sqAssert.h via dispdg.h prior to the cogit.h and cointerp.h included.
This PRODUCTION is set 0 or 1 and NoDbgRegParms is defined one way or the other.
cpp then pre-processes cogit.h.
At this point, I lose track of the semantics, but I deduce that NoDbgRegParms IS defined from the gcc3x-cointerp.c parse so NoDbgRegParms is left as is in the cogit.c file.
This was the bug I was tracking down.
I leave it to the more experienced to judge the correctness of the forensics.
