Now that you know which tar you're using, :-)
time to drag out the standard debugging process for
1) get the sources
2) compile, adding "-g"
2a) If you get any compiler warnings, fix them
and send the diffs to the maintainer.
Often fixing the compiler warnings will
fix a seg fault.
3) Try it again. If it still seg faults,
run it under a debugger and get a stack backtrace.
