Dear list,

This problem has been discussed: seralization library can not be built
under mac because gcc will hang when compiling xml_grammar.cpp (See
the attached email from this list). Has anyone investigated this

That's the one. Perhaps it's not a memory problem but rather a
compiler bug? I haven't ever bothered to dig into it because I am not
using the serialization library. As I said before, I usually restrict
the build to just the libraries that I need. It saves time and space.
