The first test is 'make install' ... I am now at this phase (and in  
this state it invokes pdftex which seems to be my default from TL '08,  
which of course always crashes – need to update my ~/.MacOSX/ 
environment.plist for next try). Compiled with GCC-4.2 on PPC Leopard.  
I'll try once more with LLVM-GCC-4.2!

Well, actually it's the "binary image" of /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/ 
universal-darwin/latex which crashes while compiling the  
documentation. 50 or 60 crashes have happened until now and my start  
volume is getting overcrowded with core files!

To Herb:

Dick Koch compiled asy with Boehm Garbage Collector, gc, which is  
compiled automatically once the configure script finds the gc-7.1  
source archive in asy's source directory, GNU Scientific Library, gsl,  
and readline support. I'll install Fink's libsigsegv2 (libsigsegv-2.6)  
to recompile asy with its support. I've seen already that some files  
were installed into TL '09! The configure found latex, pdftex, and  
context before. In presumingly 20 hours I might be able to give you  
some hints configuration and successful installation.



Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.
