After hours of running this in circles for both 6.2.0 and 6.2.1
with both gcc 9.3.0 ( Debian 9.3.0-18 ) and also the latest
gcc 10.2.0 (Debian 10.2.0-17) I can report that the test t-printf
does fail every time. With a consistent configure :

./configure ABI=64 --enable-cxx --prefix=/opt/bw
--libdir=/opt/bw/lib --disable-assembly
--enable-shared --enable-static --enable-fft

So that is strange.

I can also try gcc 8.x but that will need another day.
