 From looking at the compiler options of the failing tests, I would
think that the gcc tests are run in the debug variant. And I'm sure that
hp_cxx is running the debug variant, as I'm the one running the tests.

There is hopefully someone around with access to one of these gcc
versions which is able to help. I could look into the failures on hp_cxx
tomorrow, perhaps the failures are related.
