I'll probably chuck it if I need to get a Mac monitor. I also have 0 
experience with MacOS and no desire to learn TBH. :)

If you want to try it out the source tar.gz and diff are here:


The package is called "clisp" and it's a LISP interpreter/compiler. The crash 
looks like this:


If the build gets that far then

cd debian/build
gdb ./lisp.run
>> run -B . -N locale -Efile UTF-8 -norc -m 750KW -x "(load \"init.lisp\") 
(sys::%saveinitmem) (exit)"

>> backtrace

Should print out a back trace of the program. >> means at the gdb prompt BTW.

If the build does something else entirely, which is very possible, then as 
many lines as possible of the build (cut and paste from the terminal - I 
don't know any more cunning techniques) would be very helpful.
