LO 5.1.1 in contrib and harfbuzz 1.2.4 in opt would compile but when I 
tried to run any of the executables I got the splash screen and then a 
segfault. The programs never started.

The LO pre-release works fine with harfbuzz 1.2.4 for me. I didn't 
try 1.2.6.

I suspect it is due to other ports I have installed that are linked in 
because they exist when I compile one of the pieces needed for LO but I 
never could track down which one.
