I believe conftest is supposed to crash under certain conditions.  I 
have compiled a number of configure-based programs that include a 
conftest crash.  I think it is a program created by configure to check 
for the presense (or absense) of specific library functions and/or how 
they react to conditions.

With some configures (for example, the one for the development version 
of XEmacs in CVS), the configure script appears to be aware of the 
potential crash and fails to compile the file conftest.c.  Then, I 
usually see an error in the configure output about the file conftest.c 
not existing.
