The solution, Tomaz, is for you not to use GCC-3.x snapshots or
afaik I did not.
In anycase, a gcc-3 built /boot/loader is what is generating the stack
overflow. I think all the other boot bits work with both compilers.
Compiling and installing new boot blocks:
I did all this via live cd and sources on disk and it worked, but I specifically set CCVER to gcc2 and made sure that stack
protection was NOT turned on.
So it appears that this is not gcc3-only issue. It appears on another Opteron machine as well.
disklabel -B ad0s1 (for example)
was not needed.
So it appears I need to run another script to do the steps you mentioned, but specifically with gcc2 and WITHOUT stack protection.
