Ok, guess if one of us has a lot of time on our hands we should start 
experimenting with opt flags because we are very sure some of them are 
breaking the build.  I don't know if it's an error on our part (it might) 
or if it's because we do some funky thread and stack manipulation.

Try a complete unoptimized build and see what it gives - if that works, we 
will see which combination of opt flags gives the problem.
BTW, I'm suggesting this because we had a lot of gentoo users complain and 
for all of them the problem went away with default opt flags, removing
