Ok. I run gmake distclean
and configure --without-gcc
(output from configure confirmed that it would not use gcc).


cc -G -KPIC -Ki486 -belf -Wl,-Bexport 
build/temp.sco_sv-3.2-i386-2.2/arraymodule.o -L/usr/local/lib -o 
/bin/sh: 1577 Memory fault - core dumped
gmake: *** [sharedmods] Error 139

Did not even take nearly as long for it to coredump. With optionless 
configure build was going at least for a half an hour and this one
bailed out pretty much right away...
