Fantastic!  Would it be possible for you to send be the whole build
log, preferably with the gcl configure and build log?  Is this gcl
2.3.6?   The timing is quite fortuitous, as we have a very few
machines left with gcc 2.95 installed to get this worked out.

FYI, I've tried gcl 2.6.7 on gcc 3.3, and still see some
non-determinism, but never a complete successful build.  Would like to
reproduce what you are doing more closely.

Thanks again!
