No.  I found the issue and apologize for the stir.  newlib 1.16.0
added a second __assert variant and we needed it in the
RTEMS assert implementation.  This is NOT a 4.8 issue at
all and fixed in RTEMS CVS.

The 4.8 tools issue is just that patch changed after 1.16.0
pointed out that we had a couple of POSIX API discrepancies.

Spin the MinGW tools. :-D
