Darwin is not affected by this.  The problem, in all configurations where it appears, appears as a heap exhaustion while compiling SB-UNIX:UNIX-SELECT.


Looking further…


Compiling the sbcl-1.0.54 distribution sources on oi-151a causes a longish pause on the order of minutes, but eventually it gets past this compilation step.  The build host has 12 Gib of physical RAM, so maybe it is a bit "larger" than what you are encountering.  


Is there any additional data, tests that I can perform on my end to help with your triage?
