The default is to build with font backend disabled, so if you didn't
_enable_ it, you are building without it.

  gdb ./oo-spd/i386/emacs.exe
  (gdb) break init_user_info
  (gdb) run -Q

Then, when it stops in init_user_info, type:

  (gdb) until 619

(619 is the number of the line where it calls

When it stops at line 619, type "step" repeatedly to step through
get_sid_sub_authority_count, and see what happens there.

If you compiled with optimizations, it could be that
get_sid_sub_authority_count is inlined, and you will have difficulties
stepping through it.  If that happens, please recompile without
optimizations (edit gmake.defs to remove the -U2 compiler switch, then
run configure, make, make install to rebuild).

If it doesn't find the sources, use the `dir' command to tell GDB
where to find the sources.  This command accepts a name of a directory
and adds it to the list of directories where GDB looks for sources.

Btw, is that a 32-bit Vista or a 64-bit one?
