Strangely on Red Hat 9 that test (test_tools_test) is failing with all gcc
versions for me at runtime, even though the regression tests at
show it passing,

... looking at it further it seems that the preprocessor directives are
messing up the test somehow (removing them results in the test passing),
so... patch withdrawn.

... and further testing, if I so much as add a single newline to that file,
the test starts failing at runtime !

What is it with this file?
