	Great - this is the best approach when a problem comes up in a parallel

	Exciting :-) it looks like the linker crashes. So - we should do:
	build verbose=1

	to get the exact command line - hopefully you don't have a custom
python compile - so you can use gdb.

	So - with the verbose you should get a long command line of what is
executed and crashes.

	repeat that command pre-pending:

	gdb --args <command>

	and when it crashes enter: 'thread apply all backtrace' and paste the
output here.

	What Linux, and toolchain are you using ? in general the linker
shouldn't crash.

	If that doesn't help - perhaps there is just some stale binaray in
there - I would be inclined to remove unxlngi6.pro and re-build that
