So I noticed. It appears that Im using the latest libstdc++ for my
So its a little hard to replace the libstdc++.a with an older version.
Im also using egcs-2.91.66
It appears that the only newer version is libstdc++-3 (2.90.8)
from the GNU site.
Unfortunately my c++ knowledge is limited to probably only being able
to put cout's before and after all the clone lines I can find in the
If you need some compile time on my machine while Im online, to help debug it
I'll give you a login on my machine. Since the problem is reproducible here.
Also I cant see where add_new_chains calls clone... I guess im just showing
my c++ inability.
I've also attempted to use the binary distribution. Though it is linked
with ncurses 4, I assumed was the libc5 version. I appear to only have
ncurses 5 on my machine.
( I had some nasty effects when ncurses 4 was on the machine, as it
also wanted libc5 dynamically linked having both libc5 and libc6 wanting
