Actually, it has very little to do with glibc.  There's a memory-related
bug in that program.  I'm curious to see what valgrind has to say about
it.  Here's what I would do.

Edit /etc/makepkg.conf.  Disable the strip option in the OPTIONS array.
Change CFLAGS to read:
CFLAGS='-g -O0'
Next, rebuild the package.
Run it under valgrind, like this:
valgrind --leak-check=full --log-file=valg.log PROGRAM_NAME PROGRAM_OPTIONS
If you send me the log file off-list, I'll look over it.
You should probably undo the edits to /etc/makepkg.conf when you are
done.   I keep two copies of makepkg.conf: one for building normal
packages, and one for building packages with debugging symbols.
