#538 wrong version of libsigsegv?

build problems

I downloaded CLISP 2.48 from sourceforge.net on the 12th of December 2009, and attempted to compile it on my Intel Core2duo macbook (OS X 10.5.8). I Have XCode installed.

The ./configure file gave me the wrong version of libsigsegv, I think.
libsigsegv: no, consider installing GNU libsigsegv

Please install libsigsegv like this:
mkdir tools; cd tools; prefix=`pwd`/i386-apple-darwin9.8.0
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/libsigsegv/libsigsegv-2.6.tar.gz
tar xfz libsigsegv-2.6.tar.gz
cd libsigsegv-2.6
./configure --prefix=${prefix} && make && make check && make install
cd ../..
rm -f src/config.cache
./configure --with-libsigsegv-prefix=${prefix}

As you can see libsigsegv is 2.6, however when I followed instructions and emailed Bruno this line: libsigsegv: i386-apple-darwin9.8.0 | yes | yes | 2.6
he responded that libsigsegv is now at version 2.8 so perhaps this needs to be updated.

    thank you for your bug report.
    the bug has been fixed in the CVS tree.
    you can either wait for the next release (recommended)
    or check out the current CVS tree (see http://clisp.cons.org\)
    and build CLISP from the sources (be advised that between
    releases the CVS tree is very unstable and may not even build
    on your platform).
