   | Does not dump core for me, but does not work either without GLX extension.
   | Do you have GLX?
 Sorry, eh??   Is that some kind of mountain bike?
 That is, I have no idea, and no idea how to find out.
 However, to perhaps restate a little history, and maybe add some info
 I have not included before (mostly because some of it post-dates the PR)
 when this first occurred, crack-attack was stable, the exact same version
 had worked fine on NetBSD 4/i386 (or might have even been NetBSD 3 at the
 time).  It would be with pkgsrc modular xorg.  Recompile, no change to
 distfile, same OS version, and it starts dumping core.
 To me, that tells me that one of the dependencies changed an interface
 somewhere, and being unchanged, crack attack wasn't coping very well.
 Which one I never found out (could be anything including the X pkgs).
 It has been a while since I had an opportunity to test this, but the last
 time I did. nothing had changed (the game startup screen where you select
 options, etc, was OK, but try and actually start, and core file results.
 However, with the exact same hardware, and (apparently) the exact same
 dependency packages, but with NetBSD 5 and its native X and it works OK
 (maybe that means I have GLX, whatever that is, on all the relevant systems).
