[gambit-list] Difficulties while using 'make check' and while loading syntax-case...

I'm trying to get a Gambit installation up and running under OS X.

When I `make check`, test #2 fails, issuing:

------------ TEST 2 (error handling)
../gsi/gsi -:h8000 -f error.scm < error.scm > test2.out
*** FATAL ERROR -- Heap overflow
make[1]: *** [test2] Error 70
make: *** [check] Error 2

I have actually modified the -:h, so I don't remember if that's the
"stock size".  I also tried supplanting -:h with -:m, and that fails

------------ TEST 2 (error handling)
../gsi/gsi -:m8000 -f error.scm < error.scm > test2.out
make[1]: *** [test2] Error 138
make: *** [check] Error 2

I've included the transcript with this email.  It stops dead in the
middle of printing 'member', and it does so repeatedly.

On a seperate note, after doing a `make install`, and issuing the command:

(load "~~/syntax-case")

...I consistently and repeatedly get a bus error.  If, instead, I do a:

for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10; do gsi -e '(load
"/usr/local/Gambit-C/syntax-case")'; done

...only two of the ten invocations fail with a bus error!  What is
that supposed to mean?
