Hmmm... This sounds like a classic problem that used to occur with
GCC passing small structs differently from the compiler used to
compile the system's LIBC. The same thing happened some years back
on SGI's Irix when users were trying to use GCC. (*google* *google*)...

Aha! Found it. See <>
for the GCC 3.4 situation on the MIPS ABI, especially the older
issues "B" & "E". The problem Bernard Fischer writes about sounds
like a case I remember of "E" when calling "gethostbyname()" from GCC.

I don't know if OS-X has any similar issues, but it might...
