"make install" did not install the fonts shipped with the Freeciv
source, so the client looked for "stdfont.ttf" when you ran the
installed version, but used the included "fonts/Vera.ttf" font when you
ran the client in the Freeciv source directory. So the crash was
probably caused by an incompatible "stdfont.ttf" file.

I've committed a patch that makes the font to be part of the theme. To
make it work you'll also need to download the updated theme files.
