I'm trying to make sure that I understand this. This is entirely a Mac OS X
problem rather than a Fink or Octave problem and there is little that I can

I have the Dec 2002 OS X Dev Tools and the Aug 2003 gcc Updater installed.
These appear to be the latest version for Mac OS X 10.2.8 (Jaguar). I'm not
sure if upgrading to OS X 10.3 would solve the problem?

When checking the Developer Site, I found:
Xcode Tools v1.0 
Xcode Tools version 1.0 include gcc 3.3, Interface Builder 2.3.4,
AppleScript Studio, updated documentation, performance tools.  NOTE:
Requires Mac OS X v 10.3 or later.
But I don't know if this takes the place of the Dev Tools and if this would
take care of the bug in the C or C++ libraries for OS X.
