inkscape-0.92.0_1 from either /latest or /quarterly binary package repo
seems to work fine here inside 10.3R amd64 jail on 12.0C amd64 kernel.

Not enough details about environment to reproduce.

This is probably precursor to the crash. Build WITH_DEBUG=1 the port
itself and all library dependencies then try

  $ G_DEBUG=fatal_warnings gdb inkscape
  (gdb) run
  <wait for crash>
  (gdb) backtrace

- Try removing ~/.config/inkscape and ~/.cache/inkscape
- Try force-rebuilding all dependencies
- Try running from a pristine jail
- Try bisecting if you know which version last worked
- Look at backtrace for more clues
