Chromium 19 core dumps on launch...

Friday I installed Chromium again because it would be nice to have a
browser to test in other than Firefox and Opera. It was installed using
portinstall -R chromium, which *appeared* to function properly.

However, trying to run chrome results in:
pid 50993 (chrome), uid 1001: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)

>From what I found online, it looked like I may have been encountering an
issue with devel/google-perftools, but on reinstall was able to confirm
that this is building with gcc not clang.

I have also removed my ~/.config/chromium directory with no change in

Not sure if it's relevant, but the last version of Chromium that was
*functional* for me was 12. Versions 13-16 didn't support loading web
pages (the browser would launch, but if I entered a URL in the address
bar, I could leave the browser running overnight and it still wouldn't
have started loading a page). Then when 17 and 18 wouldn't even compile
(marked ignore), I just removed package.

Looking for suggestions on getting Chromium to at least launch...
