	graphviz fails to build... using pkgsrc -current as of: Tue Feb 27 12:45:09 PST 2007

build fails with:

running 'dot' from the failed-install yields:
bash-3.2$ dot
Error: /usr/pkg/lib/graphviz/config is zero sized, or other read error.

There are notes I've found searching WWW about running "dot -c" or "dot -cv" as root to generate a config file. It _does_ create a new (but still empty) config file, and then dumps core.  Similar sounding issues from web search include graphviz bug 767 ( and bug 838 ( don't know if these are relevant.
