Both of these are now fixed!

This is a gcc bug, so we are ignoring it for the release.

fftbench - GCC doesn't support i128 when compiling for 32-bit  
processors, so no fix for this.
403.gcc - same as mentioned above, gcc bug.

So, I need to rerun all the tests and package things up. Chris is  
working on the release notes. Hopefully we can have this out by the  
end of the week.
