As I also happen to maintain gcc 4.4 ATM for the illumos-userland
project, I can probably help with that. I hadn't tried enabling
asserts with the gcc we've got to see if it fails. When I switch to
one of our compiler servers, I'll give it another whack. Otherwise
tweaking compiler builds is about as much fun as watching paint dry.

Part of what motivated me to pick up a recent port of llvm/clang was
the talk about DTrace integration at dtrace.conf the other week:


That may not be news to you.
