mesa-users] mesa on Mac OS X 10.5 -- what's the trick? stuck with segfaults. ; -(

I've got OSX 10.5.6 on my MacBook and have mesa running just fine.
I'm guessing you probably use ifort which I can't comment on (can't
really justify spending the money), but with gfortran it seems to work
okay.  My copy of gfortran is installed through macports (I'm lazy
;-), the version info is:

zefiris:~ jshine$ gfortran -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i386-apple-darwin9.6.0
Configured with: ../gcc-4.3.3/configure --prefix=/opt/local
--libdir=/opt/local/lib/gcc43 --includedir=/opt/local/include/gcc43
--infodir=/opt/local/share/info --mandir=/opt/local/share/man
--with-local-prefix=/opt/local --with-system-zlib --disable-nls
--with-gmp=/opt/local --with-mpfr=/opt/local
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.3.3 (GCC)
zefiris:~ jshine$

Other than using macports to install gfortran, I've done nothing
special with regards to getting mesa to compile & run, and have had no
particular problems with segfaults.


Also, here's the version info on my machine from "System Profiler":
  Model Name:	MacBook Pro
  Model Identifier:	MacBookPro4,1
  Processor Name:	Intel Core 2 Duo
  Processor Speed:	2.5 GHz
  Number Of Processors:	1
  Total Number Of Cores:	2
  L2 Cache:	6 MB
  Memory:	4 GB
  Bus Speed:	800 MHz
  Boot ROM Version:	MBP41.00C1.B03
  SMC Version:	1.27f1
