[Openmcl-devel] Error: can't dump a typed pointer, building IDE

I've just upgraded my Mac to Snow leopard. It's possible that is the  
cause of the problem I'm reporting, but the error seems odd for that.

When rebuilding the IDE from a script with this command:

         echo "(require 'cocoa-application)" | ccl -n

I get:

The same diagnostic is produced by the 64 bit version.

The same script was building ccl @ r12921M fine, but that was  
yesterday on Leopard...

Have I broken my install during my upgrade, or is there a bug in the  
trunk? (Rebuilding ccl & its kernel seems to go well on my machine)
