What version of XQuartz? OS X? Can you provide the crash log?

Perhaps a bug in MIT-SHM ...

Why did you do that? What problem are you trying to fix by forcing that compiler to be used? What Xcode version do you have? gcc-4.2 is *ancient* and should only be used as a last resort, or if you're on an old OS (in which case I'd recommend installing a newer compiler with MacPorts and using it instead).
