Hi, Emacs,

in my recent attempts to build Emacs-23, I have encountered Seg-faults
continually.  These occur when the (prototype) Emacs is byte-compiling
the mass of Emacs lisp files.

However, if I just type 'make', the build continues.

My system is Debian-Sarge GNU/Linux.

My first suspicion was that my swap partition was too small.  So I
terminated all competing applications, but that didn't prevent the

So I suspect there is a store leak somewhere.  Would somebody please
suggest some appropriate tool(s) for me to look at this with.  A graphic
X-Window program continuously displaying allocated/free store is the
sort of thing I'm thinking of.
