Following up my own post...

The problem is related to text.  If I delete the text lines from the
offending files, everything works.  If I create a file with xfig, it
works until I try to enter some text.  Any idea where I should be
looking?  Backtrace shows this:

#3  <signal handler called>
#4  0x00007f7ffbeb7650 in strcpy () from /usr/lib/
#5  0x0000000000481790 in lookfont ()

#10 0x00000000004369ca in read_fig ()

#12 0x000000000043156f in load_file ()
#13 0x0000000000441455 in main ()

I suspect it's environment, since others report no such problems.  (I
can rebuild wtih -g, I suppose.)
