Ah, you didn't label the two 'gs --help' attachments (or rather labelled them
the same), and I read the wrong one, sorry about that. The one for 9.03 does
appear to be as expected.

Its not spurious I think, its telling you that it couldn't find a particular
icc profile, and that (eventually) is what is leading to your segmentation

What I don't understand is why your system can't find the iccprofiles
directory. It seems to be present, correctly named and in a location which the
search path ought to find, yet it persists in not finding it.

When I do the same here (on Fedora 14) it works, and even if I don't configure
GS properly it doesn't seg fault, it just exists with an error.

The only thing I can think of is to check that you have cleaned and rebuilt
9.03 completely ? 

Failing that I'm going to have to leave this to one of the  developers with
more Linux experience than me to try and reproduce.
