Subject: [OMPI devel] RFC: Remove Darwin backtrace support
From: Barrett, Brian W (bwbarre_at_[hidden])

All -

I would like to remove the Darwin backtrace component. Since 10.5.0, OS X
has supported the execinfo() interface supported by Linux, which is both
easier to use and less fragile. So the impact will be a loss of stack
traces on failure on OS X versions prior to 10.5.0, which should be a
small set of users. If no one objects before Friday, July 5th, I'll
remove it then.
