I first experienced this bug using the packaged version, 5.4-1. When I
first started building it I had lesstif-dev installed and not
lesstif2-dev (they conflict). When I built manually the first time
using this (not using the debian script) it worked properly. I tried
the debian build setup to see what was different (using
dpkg-buildpackage) and it complained about missing build prereq of
lesstif2-dev. When I installed that and built the debian package
manually, I encountered the issue. I edited the control to not require
lesstif2-dev, and reinstalled lesstif-dev and built again using
dpkg-buildpackage and once again it worked properly, experiencing no
problems. I do not think I should have multiple versions of the source
headers unless the packages are bad, but this still does not explain the
problem I am seeing with the distribution package.
I am curious what version of other libraries you are using in your
system (ex libxt6, libxp6, xlibs...) since it always seems to bomb in Xt
functions. Though it would be hard for me to try different versions
without up/downgrading my entire X system.
