I went back and removed 2.9 from /usr/local and tried to make 2.8 all
version and 2.8 mac version but the both fail.  I guess 2.9 has been
worked on so it will make on Lion, but as noted before, it won't work
with otp 14B02 make.  I see i386-darwin11 during the compile so maybe
it's using 32bit compile and not 64bit compile.
