Thanks. I've recently deleted "extern" for declarations in .c files - now I see that's wrong - I've added "extern" back (for variables). Now should work for you (the scripts are freshen too since you fetch from CVS).

./configure --enable-gc-assertions --enable-parallel-mark --enable-munmap=6

Also interesting to look into warnings list printed with -Wall (excluding for tests and cord stuff) on Darwin.
