No. I am using:

   i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build
5658) (LLVM build 2336.9.00)

so almost the same compiler precisely. And I am on 10.7.5 so we're pretty
close there too.

 i suspect it is your build environment, but  I have no clue what aspect of
it. I've put too much time into trying to make this "always" work to do
much more, sorry.

when I get a chance, i will check over the state of the relocation patch
agan. not sure when that will be.

For the rest of the (non-modified) dependencies, I've found most of them on

it will make your system almost impossible to develop on. or rather, it
may. and you won't know till it goes wrong, at which time cleaning it up
will/may be hard.
