Ah,  someone must have noticed this because there is a comment in the code
:-)  Anyway you get this:

libtest.c:261: warning: no previous prototype for `mono_test_empty_struct'
libtest.c: In function `mono_test_empty_struct':
libtest.c:267: Internal compiler error in ix86_compute_frame_size, at
Please submit a full bug report.

When it is compiled.

This obviously can be fixed by adding something to the struct if it is the
affected version of gcc.  But that is likely to break the tests.
