Check (using ldd <program>) the shared library dependencies on the
binaries. If they want something like libc 5.2.xx, you are running libc
5.4.13 which has major changes to how malloc functions which cause
programs compiles against 5.2.xx to segfault with 5.4.13 and later

You can try:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libgnumalloc.so <program>

and see if that helps.
