I have seen problems similar to what Martin describes when
I build Axiom Gold (patch-49 and patch-50), build-improvements
and wh-sandbox on the server. The same
source codes build properly for me on SuSE 10.2.

The server runs as a shared virtual host
using a variant of the Red Hat linux kernel I am not exactly
sure the of details, but the upshot is that the linux memory
management in this configuration is a little different. As a
result it does not support the configure option


I have to manually build gcl with a smaller memory size. With
gcl-2.6.8pre it is possible to use values that are not powers
of 2 and it seems that almost any size less than 256*1024 will
work. Right now I am using


and the build completes normally.

I am not sure whether this is related to Martin and Tim's
problem or not but it is my initial guess.
