I hope not, since this problem was the main reason for 1.3.
I applied Michael Schwern's patch instead of Stas' since I was 
concerned that Stas' patch would break picky platforms like OSX, 
whereas Michael's patch shouldn't have.

OTOH empirical evidence speaks much louder than idle speculation. 
If you're willing to speak on the veracity of Stas' patch for 
OSX for 5.8.*, I have no objections to seeing it applied to cvs.
Platform details would come in handy, since we've had trouble
reproducing these build bugs in the past (especially if you have 
some's floating around from old "configure" installs-
running "ldd" on the failing's might help us figure out
which libraries are being linked in).
