Hi Ralf:

That might be part of the problem.  Last time I built it under (ba) 
sh, which doesn't appear to have a limit command, unlike tcsh and  
zsh.  So I am rebuilding under tcsh now (I had encountered a problem  
with zsh previously but I can't recall what it was).

For the record, this is the latest Developer Tools, version 2.4,  
standard default install.  Same error appears on both platforms (ppc  
and intel, both are G5's).

gcc --version
powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc.  
build 5363)

  g++ --version
powerpc-apple-darwin8-g++-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc.  
build 5363)

% sw_vers
ProductName:    Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.4.7
BuildVersion:   8J135

Right now I am redoing this with tcsh and the limit command you  
suggested.  Hopefully that will cure the problem (which didn't appear  
for any previous version, btw).
