Another gcc bug

if one builds anything with gcc-4.1.1 with -Os -ffast-math flags, the 
resulting program will segfault on modern CPUs. This is an issue for the 
LiveCD, because it builds everything with -Os, and procps adds 
-ffast-math (thus, ps segfaults). Upstream has fixed this, please apply 
the attached patch.

P.S. I think it is a good idea to search gcc bugzilla for "fixed 
critical bugs targetted at gcc-4.1.2" and consider them as well.
