tests failing (one sooner, one later)

some days ago i posted a patch into the patch forum, after compiling ice on alpha and linux-ppc


my question is how to get more information about why these tests failed.

my compiler was in both cases g++-3.3, i built with optimization

on the 64bit alpha i did _not_ use the LP64 option in config/Make.rules

could building without optimization make some of the tests work?
could enabling LP64 on alpha make the situation better on this architecture?

    Hi Peter,

    For the first build, I recommend to build without optimization ... makes debugging easier ;) .
    The LP64 make variable is only used by the build system to set the appropriate compiler flags and directory path. You should not use it on a pure 64 bit processor.
