   Apparently the problem is applicable to all version of emacs
   (including latest CVS, back to 19.34b), on all unix/unix-like
   systems for which GNU ld is the default linker, and for which GNU ld
   is quite up-to-date.

   Symptom:  emacs dump cores at XtInitializeWidgetClass () with
                 'Fatal Error (11).Segmentational Fault'
   Solution: Adding '-z nocombreloc' to LDFLAGS
   Reason:   'combreloc' has become the default for recent GNU ld, which
                 breaks the unexec/undump of both emacs and xemacs
                 (all versions).

thank you for posting this concise explanation and solution.

         supplying more details just help the diagnostic
         process, and ultimately benefit the individual himself
         who supplies the details

that is very true.
