Yes, it works fine with gcc-4.1.2. The problem is specific to xlc, as

        ./ vacpp



which cores. Perhaps Hubert can confirm that gcc builds a good bjam?
Steven, I lack the time tonight to debug this but will change over our
tests to use gcc to compile bjam and that should be a short term
workaround. I'll attempt to look at this over the weekend and answer
your questions then.

Thanks for the help.
