Hmmm if it was, the failure must have been caused by something else
since all of the As_*ML() output functions are not in liblwgeom, and so
wouldn't have caused any changes in the underlying library.
This isn't something that's unique to PostGIS though, since the -hackers
mailing list often receives mails about broken builds after a cvs
update. The key thing is that if you receive an unexpected regression,
always do a top level "make clean; ./configure; make install" cycle
before you start spending time looking for bugs.
