The compiler I am using is i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 which come with Xcode.

Updating to git version of gambit, configure tells me what am I doing wrong.

Ok!  I will have to compile a compiler…. (again) 

Best Regards


PS: Sorry for the late reply,  I do have a day job and a family at night.  So I "play" in the very early morning.

Some versions of clang and gcc contain bugs which cause them to generate incorrect machine code when compiling Gambit.  Some versions of these C compilers generate correct code, but take a lot of RAM memory and compilation time to compile Gambit.  So it is good to choose the C compiler well.
