Arg.  I don't know what the proper value must be.  The above is what
is on trunk but since nobody reported it worked I believe we must
follow what you advise here.

Bill had a different value for that parameter (which is not a power of
2).  Personaly, I don't think users must get into  the business of
fiddling with that parameter.  Ideally, GCL should just figure out
what is the right thing to do.

| # ./configure
| --prefix=/Users/humberto/src/axiom/test/build/powerpc-apple-darwin8.8.0
| --disable-xgcl --enable-locbfd --disable-statsysbfd
| --enable-machine=powerpc-macosx '--enable-vssize=65536*2'
| --disable-tkconfig --disable-x

OK, maybe we should just leave out --enable-maxpage.  Camm?
