[erlang-questions] unable to build valgrind-enabled erlang runtime

Hello List and Sverker,

Thank you for your assistance.  I did have valgrind installed prior to
running configure, but not its source code.  Installing the source code and
running configure again did fix the problem of the missing include file
just as you indicated.

However, I am still unable to build the valgrind-enabled emulator due to
occurence of other errors.  After calling:

env ERL_TOP=/home/ec2-user/otp_src_R16B02 make valgrind FLAVOR=smp

I receive the following errors:

...
...
obj/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/valgrind/smp/hipe_bif0.o:(.data+0x5b40):
undefined reference to `nbif_emulate_fpe'
obj/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/valgrind/smp/hipe_amd64_bifs.o: In function

Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ec2-user/otp_src_R16B02/erts/emulator'


Would appreciate any suggestions as to how to fix this.

Kris
