Shouldn't be much of a problem:
Build the LVP target for Pentium 4 and wait for groff to segfault on xorg.
Build Mozilla for Pentium 4 and watch it break during build.
Build gtk+ or whatever provides scrollbar functionality to gqview and gimp for
Pentium M and try to scroll and watch the program segfault.
Where should I send these and which output do those guys want?
