No worries, the previous parts of the thread don't have much to do 
with this.

It's a 3 GHz Pentium 4.

After I sent the mail last night I decided to see what happened if I 
continuted the "make check".  If went a little further and then failed on 
dlfcn and I don't even know what that is:

I had CFLAGS set at first and the last couple of builds have been without 
them.  I just double checked and there are no CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS in my
