Re: page fault in mkfontdir

I'll note that the xutils 4.0.2-1 mkfontdir also segv's on Debian/SPARC
using 2.2.18pre21 (kernel-image-2.2.18pre21-sun4cdm) so maybe it
really is an "all the world is an x86" bug :-)

Setting up xfonts-base (4.0.2-1) ...
Running mkfontdir in misc font
directory.../var/lib/dpkg/info/xfonts-base.postinst: line 58: 24276 Segmentation fault      $currentcmd $longdir
dpkg: error processing xfonts-base (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 139

I'll poke at it with gdb...  Hmm:
% gdb /usr/bin/X11/mkfontdir
(no debugging symbols found)...
(gdb) run /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0 in ?? ()
(gdb) where
#0  0x0 in ?? ()
#1  0x5006f9ec in _init () from /usr/lib/libz.so.1
#2  0x5006f99c in _init () from /usr/lib/libz.so.1

#4  0x500032b4 in _dl_start_user () at rtld.c:147

That would at least explain why it it faulted just as quickly as a
user as it did as root... (*type type* yep, same trace when run as

libz.so is from from zlib1g 1:1.1.3-12, if that helps.  gzip and
gunzip work though.

Not up to doing an X build tonight, but if noone gets anywhere in the
next day or two I'll poke at it...
