Description Peter Jeremy 2012-10-09 23:30:16 UTC
	Various forth files in sys/boot/ficl/softwords/ are converted
	to a C string code for embedding into the FICL binary using an
	awk script softcore.awk.  This script fails to strip out
	comments that consist of a sole backslash.  Whilst this isn't
	a problem for the standard set of SOFTWORDS, the
	not-normally-included oo.fr contains comments in the
	array-init definition that cause softcore.awk to emit the
	string "\ " - which gcc rejects.

Fix: According to diff on stable-8, the following patch does not
	result in any change to the default softcore.c and only
	removes the two "\ " lines when the optional object-oriented
	words are added.
How-To-Repeat: 	# cd /sys/boot/ficl
	uncomment the line 'SOFTWORDS+= oo.fr classes.fr' in Makefile
	# make testmain
	fails with:
(cd /home/peter/forth/boot/ficl/softwords; cat softcore.fr jhlocal.fr marker.fr freebsd.fr ficllocal.fr  ifbrack.fr oo.fr classes.fr  | awk -f softcore.awk -v datestamp="`LC_ALL=C date`") > softcore.c
