Anyone got this version to build and run?

I used ./configure and make to build swish-e.  Although make test worked,
indexing a larger set of files hangs eating CPU time during indexing.  I
tried attaching with strace and gdb, but I'm not skilled enough in either
to find the problem.

I guess if it's in a loop it's not making any system calls so that's why I
don't see anything with strace.

A gdb backtrace didn't help much (below).  Can I recompile to give me more
info in the back trace?

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
