Hi Tom,

Thank you for your attention.

I change the rotl32 function in src/kdc/replay.c to write in a file to find
out the number of its execution.
I do not change compiler settings in both case. It seems that this problem
does not depend to *.h file, directly. Does this problem impact on

Best regards.
