I'm sure you've tried this, but have you recompiled without
-fomit-frame-pointer (and optimization).  Your stack trace description
sounds like this is the problem.  If not, sorry for the dumb advice.

I've been trying to get CLISP working with a Mach MULTIMAP configuration.
Unfortunately, I use NEXTSTEP, which lacks external pagers.  So I can
use the vm_map function.  If I figure out a workaround, I'll finish
that particular configuration (with IMMUTABLE support).

However, it was easy to make a SINGLEMAP configuration based on vm_allocate.
It should work with OSF also.  If your in a hurry, let me know.  Otherwise
I'll wait to upload the patches until I figure out a workaround for the memory
mapping problem (or get my hands on a complete Mach implementation).
