Funny, on linux x86_64 with Sun Studio I also got an Illegal subtraction,
but a different one: the Sun assembler refuses to compute differences of
symbols in different sections, and x86_64/sqr_basecase.asm does just that.
Moving "TEXT" before L(jmptab) in the 2 places where it occurs fixes it (I
know gcc had a similar problem with bug 31713, fixed in 2007) and the
result passes all tests.
Could you try with the latest March express compiler to check whether you
get the same error or a slightly different message?
