Thanks for tracking this down.

Adding this to egcs-1.0.2/gcc/config/mips/linux.h at the bottom should
/* Attach a special .ident directive to the end of the file to identify
the version of GCC which compiled this code. The format of the
.ident string is patterned after the ones produced by native svr4
C compilers. */
#define IDENT_ASM_OP ".ident"
/* Output #ident as a .ident. */
#define ASM_OUTPUT_IDENT(FILE, NAME) \
fprintf (FILE, "\t%s\t\"%s\"\n", IDENT_ASM_OP, NAME);
I'll test this and make a real patch later. Until that -fno-ident is the
silver bullet to avoid such sick effects.
IRIX people: I think the same bug also hits IRIX, RISC/os and others,
it's probably as long in gcc / egcs as I can think back. At least for some
of the affected targets the above fix can not be used.
