When I compile (Ch5 and Ch6) coreutils, instead of sh-utils, textutils and
fileutils, everything is fine, AFAICT. But at one point in the configure
checking for working C stack overflow detection...
and the whole machine stops for tea! My 600Mhz PIII seemed almost locked up
for 3 minutes - even the mouse cursor - then it carried on. Something
fairly hairy must be happening at a very low level.
Not something to worry about, just to be aware. It might warrant a warning
if coreutils makes it into the book. Frighened the pants off me!
