Somehow the build log does not show much of the problem.
I can see two possible causes:
1- A floating exception (problems we encountered on mipses)
The fix would then be easy.
2- A bfd issue in the dynamic loading/unloading code.
This could result from gp constructs in IA64 ELF.
Fixing this would require significant work.
We'd have to temporarilly declare lush unavailable on IA64.
I would need less than one hour of access to an IA64 machine
to determine the nature of the problem. Fixing problem 1
would be immediate. Fixing problem 2 would take weeks.
But I cannot do much without access to such a machine.
