[PCC-416] lexing of scan.l with pcc-built flex dumps core on amd64 Created: 20/Feb/13  Updated: 29/Apr/14

Environment: NetBSD amd64

Using flex built with pcc, to compile scan.l, produces a core dump.
This works OK on i386, or if using the system lex built with either gcc or clang.

Steps to reproduce:
First, build and install pcc on NetBSD (by default pcc is not installed); NetBSD src includes pcc as of 20120325, but using 20121229 gives the same result.

Then, the easiest track is to try to build NetBSD building tools with the just-compiled pcc, like with
 $ sh build.sh -V HAVE_PCC=1 HOST_CC=pcc -V MKPCC=yes -V MKGCC=no -U tools
After a while, it breaks while recompiling pcc, at scan.l; it is using the just-built nblex... Segmentation fault

Another way to reach the same point is to build flex with pcc, install it (or passing LEX=/path/to/just/built/lex) and try to rebuild pcc

Fixed now, it was a stack allocation that failed.
Tested with latest flex. Running flex test suite gives 7 failures, the same as if compiled with gcc.
