Whether trying a configure and make on the root (to build the Max OS X version of Gambit) or cding into examples/iOS and running the build-gambit-iOS script, the build fails with a complaint about a version mismatch between gambit.h and the C sources produces by the gambit compiler.

None; I had a bazillion various copies of Gambit from building Delectus and other projects and from experimenting with build strategies, so, for safety's sake, I nuked all of them, hoping to rebuild for all uses from a common set of sources.

Unfortunately, since I did that, I haven't yet found any set of sources I can get through configure, make, make check without errors.

That's true. The instructions I have filed away say to do:

1. ./configure --enable-single-host
2. make -j 2
3. make update

Currently, I run into errors in stage (2), so I never reach stage (3).
