fontforge crashes while creating fonts

Hi All,

I had lilypond 2.0.3 working on my FreeBSD 5.2 system before, but now, after 
reinstalling FreeBSD,
I can no longer get it to work. I've included the tail end of the output below. 
If I'm interpreting
the output correctly, it appears to be crashing in FontForge, which I think is 
being run from
mftrace. The snapshot of the FreeBSD port collection that comes with the 
FreeBSD 5.2 distribuition
contains lilypond 2.0.1, which also fails to install. Before,
I had been able to get lilypond working by updating my ports collection, and it 
installed 2.0.3. Now,
however, updating the ports collection doesn't help. It appears that the 
lilypond port was broken,
was then fixed, but now is broken again due to the problem with fontforge.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
