Red Hat 6.1 problem FIXED
Version 1.3.1 fixes the problem (a deadlock caused by a malloc call within atexit).

Red Hat 6.1 incompatibility
I've just learned that Hoard does not work with Red Hat 6.1 (it works with 6.0). The problem is in the version of libc. A workaround using the libc and libpthread libraries from the 6.0 distribution is described on the Hoard home page. I'll release a new version as soon as I find a workaround I can implement in Hoard.

Hoard update (oops)
Someone pointed out that I had unnecessary dependencies on
iostream.h (an artefact of debugging), so I removed them and updated the tarfile, but unfortunately didn't do a "make clean" before testing it -- a test program produced in the build requires iostream.h.

If you downloaded this version (that's around 20-40 people before I discovered the error), try the updated version (1.0.1).
