I'm only able to compile the simplest programs (hello-world) with 
release-3.0 (on powerpc-darwin8).  I do get unexpected errors on more 
complex inputs, or turning on even modest optimization.  The test suite 
shows some unexpected crashes, so I'd like to attack those first.

svn-trunk has way too many failures.  Perhaps those more knowledgeable can 
dig through my logs for testing svn-trunk, and suggest where to look 

If you want to reproduce my findings with release-3.0, I recommend using 
fink with my packaging file, it does a bunch of patching, and hacking 
with the build.
