From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; MSIE 6.999; Windows ME)
Description of problem:
No entries exist for printconf-tui in /etc/pam.d/ or /etc/security/console.apps
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1 - Server install of 7.3 (ie, no X)
2 - log in as root, or su thereto
3 - run printconf-tui
Actual Results: printconf-tui segfaults
Expected Results: printconf-tui should run
Problem fixed by
cp /etc/pam.d/authconfig /etc/pam.d/printconf-tui
cp /etc/security/console.apps/authconfig /etc/security/console.apps/printconf-tui
Looks like bugs in both printconf and userhelper. Userhelper is just a
hinderance on X-less systems.
Mad propz to nalin for pointing out the fix.

printconf-tui segfault - strace
Forgot to mention it's printconf-0.3.77-1, though that should be obvious enough :)
The PAM files are in the -gui package by mistake. Fixed in CVS.
So you need 4 files in all for printconf-tui to work without segfaulting?

Yes. Fixed package is 0.4.6-1 (although it will be easier for you to grab
those files, or just install printconf-gui).
