Mozilla 1.2b and XFT issue

OK, so I downloaded the source to Mozilla 1.2b and compiled it with the --enable-xft option, among others. It will compile fine, but when I start it up, I get a segmentation fault. If I compile it without XFT support (and get not nice looking fonts :(), it will work perfectly. I have been using a modded freetype library, so I set that back in the hope that perhaps that is the problem and I'm compiling yet again, but I thought I'd put this out there to see if anyone else has experienced the problem. For the record, my libXft.so is pointing to libXft.so.2, NOT libXft.so.1. Any ideas? :)

Oh, it's running on a LFS system built upon Glibc 2.2.5 and GCC 3.2; 2.4.19 kernel.

No clue, I know the binaries work fine. Are you getting the cvs or the 1.2b source on the website?
