MPS issue job000604

TitleMPS doesn't work with gcc 2.96
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe MPS doesn't work with GCC 2.96, because of stricter language standard compliance in the compiler. In particular, we have string constants which are too long and a %p printf directive being passed an Addr argument.
This was reported [1] by someone who had downloaded the MPS.
AnalysisBreak up string constants, check printf arguments more closely, and compile with a more up-to-date GCC (thrush has 2.95.4).
