The problem only affects Darwin/PPC and here are the unknown reasons:
Division by zero has an undefined result on PowerPC processors. The
compiler has to emit extra code to assert that the divisor isn't zero.
Removing -fno-trapping-math or adding -fnon-call-exceptions options
might or might not convince GCC to do so (have no PPC machine to try).
If that won't help seems there's nothing we can do about it.
