Any update where could be a problem?
Does emacs-24.3 support ppc64le?

automake-1.11 is used during compilation.
+ ./autogen.sh
Checking whether you have the necessary tools...
(Read INSTALL.BZR for more details on building Emacs)
Checking for autoconf (need at least version 2.65)...
ok
Checking for automake (need at least version 1.11)...
ok
Your system has the required tools, running autoreconf...
You can now run `./configure'.

Here is the content from bugzilla:

Description of problem:

When built with a binutils that activties RELRO by default, emacs now fails to build on ppc64le.  Since RELRO is mandatory, emacs must be updated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Happens with binutils-2.23.52.0.1-35 and newer


Excerpt:
Loading /builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-24.3/lisp/vc/ediff-hook.el (source)...
Loading /builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-24.3/lisp/tooltip.el (source)...

Dumping under the name emacs
emacs: Program segment above .bss in /builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-24.3/build-gtk/src/temacs
make[2]: *** [bootstrap-emacs] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-24.3/build-gtk/src'

Expected results:

Successful build.

Additional info:

Turning off dump/unexec works around the issue and allows the build to succeed.
