Default Crafty compilation problem?

(Richard Heldmann) wrote in message . com...
This epd position 4k3/4p3/8/8/8/8/8/3QKB2 w - - 0 1;

is found by Crafty 19.3; it finds this mate in less than a second
using the 5-man tablebases. See below:

depth=4 +327.54 1. Qh5+ EGTB
Nodes: 55 NPS: 5500
Time: 00:00:00.01

Crafty 19.11 produces this output:
depth=0 +0.00
Nodes: 0 NPS: 0
Time: 00:00:00.01

This was done on a Pentium 400Mhz machine, using Winboard 4.2.6. Can
someone explain this to me.
Thank you.

Please include more information. You mention compilation problem on
the subject line but you don't expand on this. What OS's are you
using? Mate in how many? Your 19.11 output does look unusual though,
however. First is my 19.3 output from a 1200Mhz WinXP laptop:

Below is my output from 19.11 on a 533Mhz celeron running FreeBSD 4.5.
I gave it 300 seconds to reply and it was more than needed, at least
if your desired answer is Bc4. The tablebase between these two
computers may vary a bit and you may have more tablebases that I have
of course so our results aren't directly comparable.
