I would like to add that I'm experiencing the following issue on Leopard 
as part of trying to compile Bigloo:

Starting program: /private/tmp/Xactestjoelr 
Reading symbols for shared libraries +++. done
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0xffff027a in __spin_lock ()
(gdb) where
#0  0xffff027a in __spin_lock ()

#8  0x00001f69 in main (argc=1, argv=0xbffff2d8)

This is using the stock 7.0 tarball. I will try with CVS of course but 
would love to know why the above lockup is happening.

    Thanks, Joel
