Sorry to reply to my own post.  I hunted down all the required packages 
and then built the source rpm for mpeg4ip to make sure everything was 
built in 64-bit land and still get the seg faults.  In case anyone is 
interested, using h.264 + ffmpeg to encode the mpeg4 files that I'm 
attempting to hint seems to trigger the bug.  Sigh....
