During development of the sequencer it may happen that the SNL compiler
(snc) crashes with a segmentation fault. With 3.14 this looks like

franksen@tiber: ...test/validate/O.linux-x86 > rm wait.*
franksen@tiber: ...test/validate/O.linux-x86 > make

Note the line

make[1]: *** [wait.c] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

in the make output. Now with 3.15:

Note: nothing about seg faults or dumped cores in the make output here.

I have not the slightest idea what could cause this.

I have checked (a) the environment (b) the MAKEFLAGS and (c) the command
line that invokes snc. They are exactly the same (apart from the
variable EPICS_BASE in the environment).

Cheers
Ben
