I have finally discovered the cause of the segfaults.

The segfaults occur because ulogd is loading plugins from a previous
Apparently no version checking on the shared objects. 

Somehere in the code, the default installation dir for the plugins changed
from EPREFIX/lib to EPREFIX/libexec, and this was not noted in the changelog.

On a new installation this would never be an issue, however my posted info
clearly shows I used the same build configs and config file from the previous
version(s), which result in a CRASH.  
After defining libexecdir everything worked normally with no other changes.

I missed that simple discrepancy and pity nobody noticed or pointed it out to
