building latest Imagemagick, the test for ssize_t is now failing with a

 $ gcc  ssize_t.c -o ssize_t

 if (sizeof ((ssize_t)))
                      ^

any clue what to look for ?


The test case reduces to a very simple one-liner:

int bar = sizeof((int));

Replacing the double (()) by single () gets rid of the miscompilation.

That looks like a bona fide GCC bug.
