You don't need any of --with-jit=yes --without-sigaltstack since the
default should be the same. Using --with-gc=boehm is discouraged, 
since we have a few additional fixes in our version of libgc that Hans
hasn't released yet.

Dick today fixed an issue in libgc to fix a deadlock, so you may want to
try with current cvs, but please don't use --with-gc=boehm or you
won't get the fix.

If you want to check if your patches cause this, you can just unapply
them (cvs diff >my-patch; patch -R < my-patch, basically).
I'll test your patches today as well.
