If you're getting signal 11 errors in gcc, it's almost certainly due to
hardware problems, so even if you resolve the shared library situation,
you're very likely to run into all sorts of similar errors in any memory
intensive application, such as htdig and htsearch.

Have a look at the Signal 11 FAQ to find out more:

No point in wasting time hunting bugs down until you've resolved the
hardware problems.
