I'm not sure who had the idea on running viewcore, but that information is
about the most useless debug output I've seen.  I'd recommend that you
follow the steps with gdb, as gdb provides FAR more useful output.

Also, Fonality binaries are not supported here.  You'd have to go to them
directly for any support.

Recompiling with the steps outlined in Murf's email is definitely the way to
go to get a resolution to your problem from this forum.
