Hmm. Can you run cc1 by hand? Does it die on any input?

Any chance you could compile this with debugging info and
trace it? A possibly culprit are the new string routines.

While I've put them through what I thought were exhaustive
tests, I still found bugs for cases that hadn't occurred
to me. On the other hand, I have been using them in my own
libc for over a month now.

Silly me made a change without testing, ah well.

This one is just going to have to be recompiled. Ulrich changed
the external symbol to __res_search so that he could load the
library without infringing on namespaces.

I'm currently having problems with the FSF machine getting patches
(I'm a week behind now) but after that's worked out I'll do another
release and fix at least the silliness I know about.
