You might try using the hack I added to MBlock.h for x86_64.  It's
admittedly completely bogus, but it hasn't failed for me yet.

On a pleasant note, the GCC folks have promised to fix the register
variable problems with GCC 3.x for the 3.4 release, so we should be able
to use GCC 3.4 on non-x86 platforms.
