I fixed all that; installed linux-realplayer from the ports
and set the brandelf to Linux. But the crashes still occur.

When the network gets congested and realaudio starts buffering,
it crashes immediately after it plays sound again. The console

 May 18 17:31:57 lahaye /kernel: pid 83679 (realplay),
  uid 1001: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)

and gdb -c realplay.core says:

  Core was generated by `realplay'.
  Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
  #0  0x283c3701 in ?? ()

Probably a bug in realplay then, or?
