I sadly get a core-dump during installation, when it tries to lazyload package
survival. Any idea what to do about this?

Best regards,

My configuration is:

CPPFLAGS="-I/bi/common/include -I/usr/local/include" \
    LDFLAGS="-L/bi/arch/lib -L/usr/local/lib" ./configure \
    --prefix=/bi/common --exec-prefix=/bi/arch \
    --disable-mbcs 2>&1

(it won't compile at all without --disable-mbcs)
