See what happens if you add:    -fno-tree-vrp

to the flags used for compiling openafs.  This is just a guess on my
part, but we have seen problems with -ftree-vrp in gcc 4.2.1 on
FreeBSD-current.  And that option is turned on if -O2 is specified.
So, I guess you should also make sure that -fno-tree-vrp would be
specified after -O2.

Disclaimer: this is just a guess on my part.  It gives you something to
try, if you have some spare time.  I reserve the right to be completely
wrong!   :-)
