Yes, a lot of these are probably a result of the local configuration.
I usually build a local CVS snapshot of Emacs 22 with:

    ./configure --prefix='/opt/emacs' --with-x --with-x-toolkit=lucid \
        --with-xpm --with-jpeg --with-tiff --with-gif --with-png

This includes *all* the graphics libraries which Emacs can work with in
X11, except for GTK+ widget support.  I haven't been able to track down
a minor bug which causes Emacs to dump core on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT when
I enable GTK+ widget support, but the `lucid' toolkit works fine and has
been working for several months now (with the options shown above) :)
