After applying the various build patches I posted earlier today, I tried
running make test. Unforutnately, it appears to hang in
t/examples/shootout_1.pir. It ran for about 15 hours before I finally
killed it. Curiously, it hadn't racked up much CPU time at all -- ps
showed '0:00'. A perl version of the same ackerman(3,9) benchmark runs to
copmletion just fine, in a little under 4 mintues.

This problem may have been around for quite a while. I vaguely recall
having to kill this process back in January, but I was on the trail of
bigger problems at the time, and just chalked it up to impatience -- not
wanting to wait for the program to end.

I'll look into this some more in the next week or so as time permits.

Is this still the case?

No. That one's fixed. (It turned out to be a weird flag-removal bug in
t/examples/shootout.t. I forget the patch number, but I fixed it, and the
fix got applied.)
