No, I had rm-ed config.cache before the configure that immediately
preceeded make; but it is/was something I did with configure.

It looks like it was a bad idea to see what:
--with-{signal-module,cycle-gc,pymalloc,fpectl} would do.
If I leave those options off it seems to be working...
is that `not surprising', or is `something funny going on' ?
