It is expected behaviour since we did the backtrace dump to work
only on linux. However try two things --I assume you're using an
intel mac (macbook)

1) execute in gdb
    if CLAM is compiled in debug (release=0) gdb should breakpoint
    there and it should show the backtrace --'bt' command
2) maybe the backtrace dump also work on mac-intels (or even on
    mac-ppcs) we haven't tried. It would be good if you can
    experiment with dropping the #if defined(__linux__). Disclaimer:
    it could crash your machine. If it works we should relax the
    platform condition.


void DumpBacktrace(std::ostream & os)
#if defined(__linux__)
