    Has this happened to anybody else?

    I also wonder why configure disabled exceptions?

    What version of OS X are you running ? Which version of Xcode are you using ? Where did you get the sources ? What configure options did you give ?

  • I believe that the command I posted says everything.. But it looks like nobody else has had this issue so feel free to delete this thread. Thanks.

    It doesn't otherwise I would not have asked these questions :)

    I can just guess that you are running Xcode 5.1.1 probably in Mavericks and you are trying to build in 32bit. The name of the source folder doesn't follow the source package style so i don't know where you got it so that might be the problem
