Dying ‘try’ processes

Note: This syslog entry is puzzling if the system has no program named try, but no cause for concern:

2011-11-19T01:31:21 frodo kernel: pid 47812 (try), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)

Source of the program is Perl’s Configure script, which compiles its C library test cases into programs named try. And apparently amd64 systems need to use the function va_copy() because the test case without this function leads to a segfault.
