That's good to know.  Thank you!

After fighting with the exciting zoo of multiple C libraries, MacOS
platform ABIs, MPW upgrades, etc., I decided to compile everything in
CodeWarrior and statically link it to our binary.

This was clearly the Right Thing to Do<tm>.  I'm no longer going nuts
watching MPW's StdCLib and the Metrowerks Standard Library fight a cage
match over who's going to link to what.  Our application links, and even
runs for a few seconds.

Unfortunately, as soon as I call scheme_basic_env, my application falls
over with a core dump deep in Boehm.  So I'm a lot closer, but not
exactly running yet.


I'll take a whack at it tomorrow.
