Lately there has been written alot about freetype, so I thought I'd
give it a try. But when i run dia it exit's with a segfault!

It happens for example when use start->new and places any text holding 
object in the workarea.

Heres a trace drom gdb.

What am I doing wrong. Is it X font path (and how do i change the path)
or something else

Looks to me like you're not finding any fonts.  It is supposed to give a
warning about that, though.  If you compile with --enable-debug as well
(and make sure that lib/font.c is recompiled), we can see exactly what line
it happened in (my guess is 933:).

The X font path (assuming you use XFree86 v. 4) is determined by the
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file (without -4 for previous versions), in the
"Files" section, there should be a number of FontPath entries that are
actual paths to font dirs.  You can also see in the X log file what the
actual font path is (typically /var/log/XFree86.0.log).
