Looks like your strip utility coughed up a hairball related somehow to
dynamic linking.

I don't know enough about the Mac toolchain to have any useful theory 
about why.  But I will note that the core dumps I saw from gpsdecode 
when testing remotely on your OS X machine also seemed to have
something to do with dynamic linking.  I got gsdecode to run - once -
by forcong static linking, but the could not reproduce it.

You might want to compare notes with Greg Troxel, since his Mac OS X
machine does not seem to have these issues.
