Yes. Normally what you should do is first replace the -O or -O2 with a -g in the Makefile in src/ and run make again. This switches on debugging info. Then, you run hypermail until it cores and you fire up your debugger on the core file. Normally, with e.g gdb (and dbx?) you can do it similar to:

        % gdb hypermail core

then enter 'where' (or 'bt') on the debugger prompt and you'll see a "back trace" of the program flow until the crash. It is often very helpful to a programmer to get to see that output.
