I know very little about the above, but note that:

gcc300 is NetBSD 7.1 - not yet upgraded to NetBSD 8.0.
Not sure if there is a big difference.
I do plan to upgrade in the near future.

I've just installed clang-5.0.2 on gcc300,
perhaps using it instead of the (very old) gcc
would make things easier to troubleshoot.
