I guess, uninitialized variables, the compiler should warn, when it encounters 
it while compiling.
I recompiled gnustep-base again on sparc64 (gcc-4.2.1), to check for warnings 
regarding potentially uninitialized variables, but nothing in that direction 
turned up. I remembered, that compiling on sparc (gcc-2.95) I got more 
warnings, so recompiled there too, and got a bit more warnings, but as far as I 
can see, nothing dramatically:

$ grep -i warning output | grep -v "type and size" | grep -v clobbered | grep 
-v misused | grep -v alignment

I guess the newer gcc on the sparc64 is just more clever in figuring out the 
order of declaration before usage, and therefore doesn't warn.
Since its generally working on the sparc, I tend ignore those warnings there 
for now.

Sebastian
