Well, I take it back, I'm NOT going to contact the grip developers later
today because I no longer think it's a problem with the grip package
at all. I just built, installed, and successfully ran the grip-3.1.2
source tarball on my 5.1-RELEASE box. Here's EXACTLY what I did:

    cd /usr/local/src
    tar -xvzf grip-3.1.2.tar.gz
    cd grip-3.1.2/
    setenv CPPFLAGS -I/usr/local/include
    gmake install

And it works beautifully.

Note: I use tcsh as my shell. You'll have to modify the 'setenv' line
if you run /bin/sh or something similar.

I then ran `gmake uninstall` and installed the FreeBSD grip port
yet again, just to be sure, and it faithfully core dumped.

My money is on a linking issue of some kind. Unfortunately, I'm not
well versed in FreeBSD port creation, so I'm not sure where to start

Any ideas?
