Several crashes have been fixed in the stable branch.  I propose you to
use it.

Trunk is not too stable these times.  Please compile the stable branch.

It is written that:
- either you compile all the three without debug
- or al the three with debug
so it's ok, isn't it?
"Like for opal, ekiga has to be told whether to use the debug or
optimized versions of the ptlib and opal library. Thus if you have
compiled the debug versions of the libraries, you will have to use debug
build of ekiga."
