Hi David,
Tried to build from source today on Snow Leopard, Is this an example of the
problem you were writing about? Or is it something new?

`/bin/pwd`/temacs --batch --load loadup bootstrap
Loading loadup.el (source)...
Using load-path (/Users/bmiller/src/aquamacs-emacs/lisp
Loading emacs-lisp/byte-run (source)...
Loading emacs-lisp/backquote (source)...
Loading subr (source)...
Loading version.el (source)...
Loading widget (source)...
Loading custom (source)...
Loading emacs-lisp/map-ynp (source)...
Loading cus-start (source)...
Loading international/mule (source)...
Loading international/mule-conf.el (source)...
temacs(26481) malloc: *** error for object 0x1009307f8: Non-aligned pointer
being freed
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
make[1]: *** [bootstrap-emacs] Abort trap
