That build fails after some time; the last part of the logfile, which seems to contain the information pertaining to the problem is included below. The system is a MacBook Pro (Intel) running 10.5.8, and I do have the Xcode version recommended for my system (v.3.1) installed.

I see another report of that issue:

However we were unable to reproduce it.

One suggestion in that ticket is to make sure you have the latest Xcode. Do you? The latest Xcode for Leopard is 3.1.4. Even if you already have 3.1.4, it couldn't hurt to try reinstalling it; perhaps something is corrupt and reinstalling would fix it.
