Hi All,
    I need to modify the autoconf scripts in the unix build to arrange to
omit the -fomit-frame-pointer flag form on e of the files in Cog.  I've
asked Ian for help but he's not responded for whatever reason and I would
like to solve the issue up front.  Is anyone familiar enough with autoconf
and has the free time to hold my hand through the process.  I haven't got
the patience to learn autoconf myself (fundamentally because I think its a
heap of crap, waaaay too complicated to be worth the effort) but I would
like to have the rest of the VM compiled with -fomit-frame-pointer,
essentially for plugin performance, so I don't want to take the easy route
and simply omit -fomit-frame-pointer throguhout, and I don't want to spend
the time e.g. porting the Newspeak make framework, which would be a good
thing in the long run.
