I do not know enough to enumerate your error messages but from experience I know what I have successfully done in the past when an app segfaults on me:

1) Try & get a different package of it & uninstall the one you are using & try that instead.

2) If the above fails try getting the source code & compiling it yourself.
(It has been several years since I have compiled mx44 as the availabilty of decent packages these days is high, but it used to be quite easy. I am sure there would be plenty of help here if you needed to do so, but state exactly what distro & distro version you are using.)

I am not familiar with Gentoo but do I understand correctly that emerge automatically downloads & compiles the application for you?

Have you tried manually downloading the package from the programmers site http://web.comhem.se/luna/ and compiling it yourself to see if that works?

There is a 'Read me' in the tarball that explains how to do this.
