Would it be possible for you to run this from within the debugger and
report the results?  Something like the following.  You would need to
have compiled with -g which would be the default for configure unless
you changed it.

  gdb ./fileutils-4.1/src/rm
  r -rf z

That should trap the SIGSEGV and report the location that is causing
the trouble.
