In pkg/15301 I reported that the program regxpcom dumped core during
the installatoion of mozilla 0.9.7 (and for other versions, now
including 0.9.8) on i386.

It turns out that I iinadvertently had included -fomit-frame-pointer
in the CFLAGS in /etc/make.conf. Removing this has solved the problem,
so I suppose the case can be closed. Indeed, since I was bit by
exactly the same problem during installation of some other program in
the days of NetBSD 1.0, so I should know better than

Nevertheless, is -fomit-frame-pointer not supposed to always work - or at
least to fail gracefully?
