This has gone away after I built gambc40b13  with

env CC='gcc -mcpu=970 -m64 -force_cpusubtype_ALL' ./configure 


[descartes:~/programs/gambc40b13] lucier% gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: powerpc-apple-darwin8.1.0
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/pkgs/gcc-4.0.0-apple 
--with-gmp=/pkgs/gmp-4.1.4 --with-mpfr=/pkgs/gmp-4.1.4 
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.0.0 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5018)

So it seems to be a problem with Apple's

[descartes:~/programs/gambc40b13] lucier% /usr/bin/gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.0/specs
Configured with: /private/var/tmp/gcc/gcc-4061.obj~8/src/configure 
--disable-checking --prefix=/usr --mandir=/share/man 
--build=powerpc-apple-darwin8 --host=powerpc-apple-darwin8 
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.0.0 20041026 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 4061)

as distributed.  (And don't blame the FSF, Apple's distributed compiler 
was branched on October 26, 2004, when the FSF sources still had a lot 
of bugs; the FSF 4.0.0 compiler wasn't released until last month.)

Marc:  It will be *really cool* when I can run a 64-bit Gambit on my 
2GHz G5.
