The answer is: it's a gcc bug.  The attached program should print
x = 12.3
y = 12.3

but if compiled with -O or -O2 on Stefan's machine, I get garbage:

$ gcc -O  ftest.c
$ ./a.out
x = 12.3
y = 1.47203e-39
$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/sparc64-unknown-openbsd3.6/3.3.2/specs
Configured with:
Thread model: single
gcc version 3.3.2 (propolice)

			regards, tom lane

#include <stdio.h>

returnfloat(float *x)
	return *x;

	float x = 12.3;
	union {
		float f;
		char *t;
	} y;

	y.f = returnfloat(&x);

	printf("x = %g\n", x);
	printf("y = %g\n", y.f);

	return 0;
