I am sorry, but Ihave no access to a sprac machine anymore.
But I remember that we already had a problem like this coming
from the fact that we declare somewhere an empty record
and this lead to troubles...
TVectorREgss from fpregs unit might still be empty for sparc.
This was fixed in
in May 2011...
But I was hoping it was fixed in 2.6.2 ...
Could you try to recompile trunk compiler and check that that one
does not crash.
PS :Test bug is tiny:
Try to compile the following, with either 2.6.2 or current trunk binary,
emptyrec = record
x, y : emptyrec;
