Compiling with the system's `cc' and CFLAGS containing `-O5' might

If compiling with GCC on Irix 6 yields an error "conflicting types
for `initstate'", install GCC 2.95 or a newer version, and this
problem should go away. It is possible that this problem results
from upgrading the operating system without reinstalling GCC; so you
could also try reinstalling the same version of GCC, and telling us
whether that fixes the problem.

later releases may.
On Solaris 2.7, building Emacs with WorkShop Compilers 5.0 98/12/15
C 5.0 failed, apparently with non-default CFLAGS, most probably due to
compiler bugs. Using Sun Solaris 2.7 Sun WorkShop 6 update 1 C

and the default CFLAGS.

As of release 2.95, GCC doesn't work properly with the 64-bit ABI
(applicable on UltraSPARC), but that isn't the default mode.
