NetBSD germ 8.99.1 NetBSD 8.99.1 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Jul  5 22:24:56 UTC 2017  german@germ:/usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC amd64
sysutils/xfm crashes on start-up
install xfm 
launch it
observe segmentation violation
I have been battling to build it with debug symbols but couldn't 

I tried adding CFLAGS+=-g CXXFLAGS+=-g but then the package doesn't build

The package uses IMAKE which makes it tricky for me to debug further

I can swear I had a workaround in the past and got xfm working
