Yes. They crash on my system always.
The automatic detection system thinks PentiumPro is fully P6-type 
processor, when in fact it is missing something needed in fastmemcpy().
I think that is the reason. I reported the bug here on this list about
one week ago also. (--disable-fastmemcpy or --whithout fastmemcpy helps)

Also ready made rpm binaries usually do not have all the options compiled
in; usually one or many of the following supports are missing: 
joystick, live.com, fbdev, directfb, libfame, lzo, aalib, libdv, xvid
Actually LIVE.COM support is a real bitch to get compiled in, so no wonder
about that.
