Ekiga crashing on Beagleboard

I have revision B7 Beagleboards (TI OMAP processor, which has an ARM Cortex A8 CPU).

I'm running Angstrom, and Ekiga was obtained from the software repository. I'm very interested in using Ekiga for an amateur radio project.

Ekiga crashes, though, and I'm trying to figure out why. I'm hoping one of you out there has already traveled this path, and might be able to point out where I'm going wrong.

I ran dbg following the instructions at, and got the following.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x4000ac6c in ?? () from /lib/

The full file created by gdb is here:

I know that* libraries find and load the shared libraries needed by a program, get the program ready to run, and then run it. I saw that Ekiga needed ptlib and libopal. These libraries are installed, along with their -dbg versions for gdb, and -dev version

I'm confident Ekiga should work on the Beagleboard because I found this photograph by Koen on Flickr.
