Programs that use crash with signal 10 and leave a core.

This happens only on amd64 port. On i386 they work fine.

Compile xorg-libs,xorg-server,xorg-clients and then run a program
e.g xterm.
Mihai CHELARU suggested compiling xorg-libs with the use of
"-fno-strict-aliasing" flag which corrects the problem.
