I'm trying to find out what exactly is causing the issue here. Would it be
possible for you to show me the 'gcc -###' output so that I can compare to
my version of gcc. Since the failure occurs only with optimization turned
on i'm now leaning towards a compiler issue since I compiled gcc from
source for this test. I'm hoping it's something obvious when I look closer.

So far this has failed on a RHEL6.5 system running a locally compiler gcc
5.3.0 as well as a RHEL 7.2 based system compiled with the same gcc 5.3.0.

Many thanks for your help,
