I've just built nALFS 1.2.1 on a new PC and copied my existing profiles
across.

When I run nALFS it segmentation faults.

Using strace I see that it appears to read all the profile files and then
died befire it actually acted upon the profiles:

close(3)
munmap(0x40000000, 4096)                 = 0
getcwd("/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6", 4096) = 30
lstat64("/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6/build-eyes.xml",
"eyes/build-eyes.xml", 4096) = 19
readlink("/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6/eyes", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755,
st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat64("/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6/eyes/build-eyes.xml",
{st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=238, ...}) = 0
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) @ 0 (0) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

"/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6/build-eyes.xml" is a softlink to
"/usr/src/lfs/profiles/hans3.6/eyes/build-eyes.xml" which the above code
seems to have figured out.

The same profile however works fine with an older version of nALFS.
