I am reporting facts about build failures on several machines (all
x86-64 and windows 64)
I have access to.  I can only report on things I see; I cannot
speculate on things
others don't see. So, the answer is -- I guess -- none of the above.

If you are interested in the build failures (to be clear, I can build
CCL again from trunk
on x86-64, but build on Windows 7 64-bit fails) I can supply more
evidence.  However, I
would not want to distract you if you believe it must be local mirage.
 As, I said I can
report on things I see.
