Hmmmm. I just built Ragel 6.2 on an Ubuntu Opteron box. Ragel successfully
compiled my URI and RTSP parsers (latter is quite long), and my regressions
ran without a hitch, even according to valgrind. Valgrind doesn't show any
errors with Ragel during the regex compilation, either.

Are you encountering this error in a dual 32-bit/64-bit ABI environment? If
there is an issue w/ Ragel, perhaps its merely w/ the autotools
specifications. My servers are pure 64-bit, so I can't test this conjecture.
