      Hi Björn,

      I had tried this before sending the previous message. Nothing showed up.

      If it works for you, can you see anything wrong in my configuration
      (using Xcode 4.6.1 on OS X 10.7.5)?

      $ clang -v
      Apple LLVM version 4.2 (clang-425.0.27) (based on LLVM 3.2svn)
      Target: x86_64-apple-darwin11.4.2
      Thread model: posix
      $ CC='clang' ./configure --with-features=huge --enable-pythoninterp
      --enable-rubyinterp --enable-perlinterp

      Best regards,
