Has anyone tried to build TBB for open source in vmware fusion? I've got an Ubuntu image I'm using, and it seems to be hung on the "test_malloc_compliance" step, right after a bunch of other stuff compiles. The process has about 700MB of system memory allocated, but it's only using 2-3% of the CPU time.

Looks like it's working, but slowly...very slowly. I'm observing something like a 10x slowdown in the emulated environment, which might have to do with the way memory is managed in Fusion? (Not sure.)
I'll post an update if all the tests pass.
