Very sorry for the late response on this matter.

Actually, those local variables are surely initialized when
used.  But as they are initialized under a specific
condition (e.g. check_val is set to non-nil) and used under
the same condition, it's difficult for gcc to detect that.

Anyway, I've just committed an inproved version of
find_automatic_composition, and gcc won't complain about it
now.

        * composite.c (CHAR_COMPOSABLE_P): Add more check for efficiency.
        (BACKWARD_CHAR): Wrap the arg STOP by parenthesis.
        (find_automatic_composition): Mostly rewrite for efficiency.
