Yes, it is a GNU/Linux system.

As it turns out, the solution (adding '-z nocombreloc' to LDFLAGS)
fixes problem with building current version of emacs as well.

It is a problem with 'combreloc' becoming the default since March 2002 in
GNU ld so it affects very new GNU/Linux system when trying to build
all versions of emacs and xemacs, in addition to very new GNU/Hurd systems,
and any other system for which GNU ld is the default linker and for which the
version of GNU ld is less than 14 months old.

I'll address cemacs/MULE separately.

If it contains those things, it appears to be a GNU/Linux
distribution, not a distribution of Linux alone.  See
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-linux-faq.html.

    Now back to my question: why emacs 19.34 segfault when built against
    glibc-2.3 and Xfree 4.3.0?

We're not maintaining Emacs 19.34 any more, because it is obsolete.
Other people are free to work on it if they want to.

In contrast,, we might be interested in trying to fix this problem

    I want to use a elisp script called cemacs (for Chinese inputs)
    but unfortunately the inclusion the MULE (Multi-lingual Extension)
    since version 20 has broken it.

if you send a bug report with a precise complete test case.

We are certainly interested in improving MULE.  Could you write to
address@hidden and tell us why specifically MULE is not as good
as cemacs for your usage?
