While trying to use sugar-jhbuild on DebXO (Debian on XO-1), I encountered several programs that crashed with SIGILL, apparently during execution of ffreep. While the "AMD Athlon Processor x86 Code Optimization Guide"  claims that "although insufficiently documented in the past, [ffreep] is supported by all 32-bit x86 processors", the AMD Geode LX datasheet  doesn't list ffreep.
As ffreep was added to gcc 3.4  and Build 801 seems to use 4.3.0, I'm wondering whether it has been patched/configured in some way to avoid this issue or whether the processor actually supports it and something else on my machine is broken.
