Ahhh, this explains the dependency from the build machine.
#define MAX_ALIGN 10000
static void Show_Alignment (char A , long int M, char B , long int N)
static int D [MAX_ALIGN] [MAX_ALIGN];
static char Op [MAX_ALIGN] [MAX_ALIGN];
Memory requirement for only these two arrays is roughly 500 MB.
(sizeof(int) + sizeof(char)) * MAX_ALIGN * MAX_ALIGN
Ups, this is really a bad design. I guess we should educate upstream
about dynamic fields.
If you have enough RAM + swap (1 GB) it works,
if you have less (512 MB) it fails.
OK, I'm slightly convinced. On the other hand: Isn't this a really strange
error message from ldd for this reason?
