Ouch.. Maybe you could install pocket screws behind the face frame and pull the rails in tight to the stiles. Once a glue joint breaks at an edge to end joint there’s really no way to repair it.

edit: reread your post not realizing it was already screwed….nix the pocket screw suggestion.

End to long grain glue joints cannot be reglued without cracking again unless they’re spread open, the old glue is removed, followed by regluing, and clamping. End to long grain glue joints are particularly problematic and prone to cracking due to the stile’s longitudinal wood movement being only a small fraction (~ 1/10 th) of rail’s tangential wood movement at the joint.
