Compiled on Slack 8 but segfaults on start up

I just downloaded the source and got it built on Slackware (with a little gentle coaxing) but I get a segfault on start up. gdb shows

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x814bf4f in draw_object ()

to be the culprit.

I'm using gcc-2.95.3, kernel 2.4.19, libc-2.2.5

Any pointers would be appreciated. (Is this the right forum for this type of query? Sorry if it isn't)

just done a make debug with no further modifications and the debug version seems to be working fine.

Compile drawobject.c with optimization level -O2 instead of -O3 and it will work.

Yup, that's cracked it. Thanks.
