I'm afraid there are too many differences so there's nobody who could
really give you an exhaustive list of things "this and that has been
changed", neither here nor on a GCC list.  My observation is that many
parts of the optimizer have been rewritten in GCC 4.

My personal opinion: I've always found it clearer to understand the
produced assembly code (i.e. the .s file which you are getting with
the -S option of the compiler), rather than the disassembly spammed
with some source code into it (usually called the .lst file).

Could you try to single out the subsystem/function/part of the code
that actually fails, and then strip down some minimal piece of code to
