My money at this juncture is on the randomized sbrk, which has already
broken the GCL build twice on Fedora.  Sigh.

Please check the configure output for randomized sbrk.  And then

./configure --enable-debug && make
cd unixport
make raw_pre_gcl
gdb raw_pre_gcl
(gdb) r ./

and please then post the location of the segfault.

Just to clarify, there are two active gcl branches at the moment,
2.6.8pre, and 'head'.  The latter is the experimental 2.7.0 and is not
yet ready for production.  The former is a bugfix only point release
agains tthe stable 2.6.7.  So please be sure to add -r
Version_2_6_8pre to your cvs checkouts.

Take care,
