I doubt it. If the final exe is compiling successfully, you probably did everything right.

I'd ask you to run gdb on the exe you built in order to fetch a backtrace, but as I recall, recent Macs dropped gcc in favor of clang, so I don't think you can use gdb with clang-compiled executables.

It's possible the only way to go is to install XCode and try to figure out how to get it to remote-debug processes, but that's ridiculous. *sigh*
