Bug#626122: [sparc] ghostscript: segfault using pdfwrite device
A couple of months ago, altree failed to build from source on sparc
due to a bus error. That's been fixed and altree given back; alas,
now altree FTBFS on sparc due to a segmentation fault.
This is not serious because altree:sparc is not in testing.
The relevant gs invocation looks like so:
gs -q -dNOPAUSE -sAutoRotatePages=None \
- -c quit
Afterwards, fig2dev dies with a double free or corruption (it is not
so graceful about gs failures --- see Bug#614538).
I suppose a next step might be (on any platform) to grab the ps file
that is fed to gs, and (on sparc) to grab a backtrace and start
Thanks and hope that helps,
