malloc.patch problem? [maybe not]
I've been testing Kevin's malloc patch on -current, and I thought
that I had discovered a bug.
Now, I'm not so sure.
When building pkgsrc/lang/clisp I spotted an error message
during the 'configure' phase of the build:
checking for working mprotect... Bus error (core dumped)
Eventually I reverted the malloc.patch and did a make world just
to see if it fixed my error.
No -- I still see the same bus error in the same place :o/
Here is my puzzle: I see the coredump when I build clisp in
the usual manner by typing 'bmake' in the pkgsrc/lang/clisp
directory. *But* if I run 'configure' directly from the
pkgsrc/lang/clisp/work/clisp-2.33.2/ directory, everything
works great: no coredumps.
So --> newbie question: why can't I find a 'foo.core' after I
see a 'core dumped' error message? What happens to the core
that claims to be dumped -- but apparently is *not* dumped?
Any hints how to debug this kind of problem in the general case?
