[erlang-questions] building R14B04 64-bit in OSX 10.9.1 Mavericks with clang

No matter what incantations I try, I just can’t get this to work.brew, kerl, all fail, even the mighty otp_build and configure can’t pull this rabbit out of the hat. Sample logs, although many variants were tried in vain:

    ./otp_build autoconf

There’s a curious sed error in otp_build which looks unrelated:

=== running autoconf in lib/test_server/src
sed: RE error: illegal byte sequence

But we forge on heedless:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R14B04 --enable-kernel-poll \
        --enable-threads --enable-dynamic-ssl-lib --enable-shared-zlib \
        --enable-smp-support --enable-hipe \
        --enable-darwin-64bit --enable-m64-build

Which produces a suspect build system name:

    configure: creating ./config.status
    config.status: creating emulator/i386-apple-darwin13.0.0/Makefile

It fails each time at:

Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:
  "_bp_sched2ix", referenced from:
      _load_nif_2 in erl_nif.o
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
make[3]: *** [/ramdisk/otp-OTP_R14B04/bin/i386-apple-darwin13.0.0/beam.smp] Error 1
make[2]: *** [opt] Error 2
make[1]: *** [smp] Error 2
make: *** [emulator] Error 2

Removing the --enable-darwin-64bit and --enable-m64-build doesn’t help much either:

Undefined symbols for architecture i386:
  "_bp_sched2ix", referenced from:
      _load_nif_2 in erl_nif.o
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture i386

Is this even possible now? Should I try installing gcc42 instead & hope for the best?
