Comment (by gregnietsky):

 Looking At xindy link in the bin folder

 From the changelog

 # Revision 1.13  2009/03/29 11:14:04  jschrod
 #     xindy.run does not exist any more, call clisp directly.

 ok here is the only ref to xindy.run
     my $xindy_run = ( $is_windows ?
                       "$lib_dir/xindy-lisp.exe" : "$lib_dir/xindy.run" );
     $clisp = $xindy_run  if -e $xindy_run;

 our $clisp = ( $is_windows ? 'clisp.exe' : 'clisp' ) ;

 context be dammed ....

 if there is a file xindy.run it is the CLISP runtime if it does not exist
 it uses the system clisp runtime deleteing xindy.run is "safe" with a
 clisp runtime in path.

 I still dont get a segfault id say post a BT of core but im not familiar
 with lisp or clisp code but may work something out from it.
