During an attempt to build the Stack v8.0 Release Candidate on a new iMac box running:
- MacOSX 10.9.2
- Clang v5.1 (clang-503.0.38) Target: x86_64-apple-darwin13.1.0
- XCode v5.1
the process hung trying to build base 188.8.131.52+1. (Trace to be attached.) I had previously installed gfortran, and the Anaconda v1.9.1 python distribution. Oddly, building the stack using the newinstall.sh script, selecting the installer-provided Anaconda v1.8.0 python distro, the build completed successfully.
