I cannot reproduce this. The program compiles and runs for me without
problem using `-O', `-O2', `-O3', or no optimization, with DPMI servers
CWSDPMI r3 and Windows 3.1. It doesn't take an inordinate amount of time
either (about 2 seconds on a P133/16MB).
I suspect this is a configuration problem of some sort. Please post all the
items requested in FAQ section 6.12, including what command line options you
gave to GCC. Also consider the following possibilities:
* Are your header files or libraries garbled? This shouldn't cause a
problem, but maybe check anyway.
* Is there another program called `cpp', `cc1', `as' or `ld' in your path
ahead of \DJDIR\bin?
* Viruses, hardware failures, ...?

(Btw, on my system it reports "640K". Is this just my BIOS (AMIBIOS dated
8/14/96) being stupid?)
