Hello everybody,

First of all, thanks in advance to people contributing and helping out others.   I am new to this list, to scheme, and even to MacOS so apologize my ignorance.   Although, I am a old timer Unix C programmer so we should meet somewhere.  I choose gambit to learn scheme because I am from Montreal and because I am interested into BIT and PICOBIT.

Unfortunately, apart from saying hello, I come to this mailing list for help.  I followed instructions off the website

$ wget http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~gambit/download/gambit/v4.3/source/gambc-v4_3_2-devel.tgz
$ tar zxf gambc-v4_3_2-devel.tgz
$ cd gambc-v4_3_2-devel
$ ./configure --enable-single-host
$ make bootstrap
and then boom!
$ ./bin/gsi-script 
Segmentation fault: 11

$ gdb ./bin/gsi-script

Any idea what am I doing wrong ?
