Oh really? I didn't realise that an OS X host build was broken, but it's 
good to hear that at least you can get a bit further now. Is this from a 
vanilla SVN checkout? The only reason I ask is that when I was working 
on code patches in forth/bootstrap/bootstrap.fs, it was fairly easy to 
cause forthstrap to segfault due to coding errors.
